Honeysuckle is a progressive folk act that blends older influences and traditional instrumentation with modern effects and inspiration. Comprised of Holly McGarry, Benjamin Burns, and Chris Bloniarz, this Boston based trio can frequently be found performing across the country, and playing alongside bands like Del and Dawg, The David Grisman Sextet, The Ballroom Thieves, Boy & Bear, Kitchen Dwellers, John Craigie and others. Honeysuckle was chosen as a Converse Rubber Tracks artist, has recorded an Audiotree session, and performed at Lollapalooza, Mountain Jam, and Newport Folk Festival. They were named by NPR as one of the Top 10 bands of 2016 So Far, and in 2018 they received the honor of Best Folk Artist of the Year at the Boston Music Awards.

Honeysuckle's new single "Fire Starter" was released in April by AntiFragile Music. Their previous releases "Catacombs" (2017 LP), "Honeysuckle" (2016 LP) and "Arrows" (2015 EP ), will be followed with a 3rd full-length album slated for a June 21 release on AntiFragile Music.


"So many contemporary bluegrass and folk outfits that get big have a cloying sweetness to them, or a cynical predisposition towards a radio-friendly pop sensibility. Not so with Honeysuckle. Their sound is unpretentious and unabashed, as if each song is meant for one set of ears only. They don't shy away from moments that are as technical as they are mesmerizing, and here their musicianship really shines through. Trampled By Turtles is about to be stomped by a flower y'all.” - NPR All Songs Considered

Notable Performances: Newport Folk Festival, Lollapalooza, Mountain Jam, Red Wing Roots, Floyd Fest, Papa Joe's Banjo-B-Que, Midwest Fest, Otis Mountain Get Down
