On Saturday, May 10, Forty Acres at the Five Oaks Clubhouse is pleased to present The Honeycutters, fresh from Merlefest, where they have won awards as talented emerging artists.
The Honeycutters are an original country roots band from Asheville, North Carolina. Since 2007 when the group formed, they have been playing music that is consistently as catchy as it is heartfelt. In 2011, 2012, and 2013 they were voted WNC's favorite Americana band in the Mountain Xpress reader's poll. Organically grown around the songs of lead singer Amanda Anne Platt, the band has gained an audience that has stretched far beyond their mountain home to include all corners of the United States.
Amanda Anne Platt has been hailed as "one of the best songwriters coming out of WNC (Western North Carolina) these days" by WNCW music director Martin Anderson; and her voice has been described as "perfectly unadorned" and "recklessly beautiful." In both her simple composition and honest delivery it's easy to hear the inspiration of country legends such as Hank Williams, Patsy Cline, or Loretta Lynn.
The band is frequently mentioned along with the movement to "take country music back to its roots." The Honeycutters are just doing what they know how to do: make music that feels as good to hear as it does to play. Their original brand of Americana has proven equally appealing to both the musician and the music lover; in the country and in the city; and to this generation and to older generations.
