Onion Honey, Opened with Great Performance May 20th

On Friday May 20th, 2016 “Onion Honey” started our evening with a 30 minute set. “A pair of pseudo-gingers with banjos, Esther Wheaton and David Pike started playing music together around the same time they started cooking together and watching dozens of astronomy documentaries together; the result is a deliciously stellar blend of old-time and traditional folk tunes that will tug at heartstrings and set feet a-tappin’.

They have played all over Southern Ontario and toured the Maritimes – downtown streets and uptown theatres, sunny fields and dingy cafés, living rooms, farmers’ markets, and once a hot air balloon festival.

Originally a duo, Onion Honey have lately grown to four with the addition of local folkies Michelle Horel and Stuart Cybulskie. We will post a photo of Esther, David, Michelle and Stuart on our “Performers” page.

Their warm and engaging manner and playing of the banjo, mandolin, guitar, banjolele, double bass, and washboard in their pursuit of the sounds of the past stuck the sweet spot for us on May 20th.
