Honeyboy and Boots coming to

Red Barn Radio soundstage

Showtime: 8 pm

Honeyboy and Boots are a husband/wife, guitar and cello duo with a unique style that is all their own. The songs Drew writes come straight from the heart. Their sound embodies Americana, traditional folk, alt country, and blues.


Drew Blackwell is a true Southerner raised in the heart of the black prairie in Mississippi. First picking up the guitar at fourteen, he was greatly influenced by his Uncle Doug who taught him old country and folk classics. Later, he was mentored and inspired to write (and feel) the blues by Alabama blues artist Willie King. You will hear all of this in his writing and his stories come alive in his songs.


Courtney Blackwell grew up in Washington State and comes from a talented musical family. She began playing cello at the age of three. Her mother was most influential in her progression of technique, tone quality, and ear training. Since traveling around much of the South, she has enjoyed focusing on the variety of ways the cello is used in ensembles. When she plays, you will feel those groovy bass lines making way to soaring leads create an emotional and magical connection between you and her music.


Though they spend most of their time on the road, touring Alabama, Tennessee, Mississippi, Florida, Texas, Washington and Idaho, they are proud to call Mississippi and Tennessee home!
