Annie Stokes

Raised on the seam of urban and rural living in the foothills of the eastern Blue Ridge Mountains, Annie grew up singing and performing for others. It wasn’t until she taught herself guitar at age 21 that she finally blended her love of writing and her love of singing. From there, she became a musician the old-fashioned way: on her own, busking and performing in cafes and street festivals until she had saved enough money to record her original songs. Her most recent LP, “The One That Gets Away”, won a 2022 Wammie for Best Americana/Country Album. She is currently working on new music, to be released in the fall of 2022.

She co-writes with her husband. When they aren’t making music, they are raising two girls and lots of hell in Virginia.

Honey Mapgie

 Known for vocal harmonies, classical string instruments, and nature-inspired lyrics, Honey Magpie is fronted by Millennial singer-songwriters Rachael Hurwitz (guitar), Pippa Hoover (cello) and Mandy Mears (piano). Their sound invites comparisons to all-female folk groups like I’m With Her, but draws more influence from pop than bluegrass or old time.

The band formed in 2015. Despite what felt like a late start in music, Honey Magpie pursued performing and recording wholeheartedly. They gained early success in the Triangle region of North Carolina when they won the band contest at the Shakori Hills Grassroots Festival in 2015. Since then, they have recorded two studio albums, completed multiple regional tours, and have been featured on WUNC’s The State of Things. Their single “Undecided” premiered on Pop Matters in January of 2020.

Their second album Midnight Morning draws from a richer range of musical influences and boasts a higher production level than Honey Magpie. Listeners will recognize elements of 90s rock, 60s pop, country, and femme-fronted indie pop, supported by a full rhythm section of bass, drums, guitar, and keys. Millennials experiencing a “quarter-life crisis will relate to the album’s mix of joy, angst, and reflection on life, and fans of all ages will love the new depth in the band’s sound.
