Honey Don't is the musical union of Bill Powers and Shelley Gray, a duo also well known as one-half of Paonia, Colorado's old-time bluegrass band, Sweet Sunny South. Their music is acoustic and based in the folk tradition yet crosses over into the Americana realm. The songs are catchy and engaging, funny, sad, lonesome, and uplifting. Most of the songs are original, but select covers and traditional tunes are part of their repertoire as well.
Honey Don't will play at the Glenwood Springs Branch Library on Wednesday, June 19, at 7:00 pm.
