The Local Honeys are comprised of Linda Jean Stokley and Montana Hobbs. Stokley from the rolling hills of the Bluegrass, and Hobbs from the foothills of the Appalachian region, have together developed a sweet sound of the bluegrass kissing the mountains.
They have dedicated themselves to the preservation of old music and the creation of new music. Their songwriting often reflects subject matter that little girls ought not talk about. This element played a strong impact in the production and creation of their debut album, “Little Girls Actin’ Like Men.”
Including both traditional and original songs, “Little Girls” showcases the Honeys ability to tear into hard driving fiddle tunes, sing the high lonesome sound, and tell a captivating story.
In April 2017, Stokley was selected as a finalist for the Chris Austin Songwriting Contest at Merlefest in Wilkesboro, N.C. for her powerful song, “Cigarette Trees.” The Honeys brought the blue ribbon back to the bluegrass state and continue to spread the important message of “Cigarette Trees” across the region.
