Christa Joy and The Honeybees w/ Douse the Glims at The Parlor Room
Add to Calendar
DOORS OPEN AT 6:30PM.
Originally from rural Massachusetts, Christa Joy grew up in a teacher preacher truck-driving kind of family. Joy spent the earliest years of her songwriting telling stories of her rural upbringing, the illness and death of her mother, and the brokenhearted years that followed this loss. Impermanence, separation, and the fragility of human life were themes that figured prominently in her early work. With the birth of her daughter in 2015, parenthood inspired new directions in her writing. She lightened up, began to laugh again, and took notes for the whole ride. These are the moments that are brought together in her most recent collection of songs, “Get On, Heart!” Country folk with a dash of honky-tonk, Christa Joy and the Honeybees will have you crying in your beer one moment and dancing your heart out the next. Joy has opened for seasoned troubadours Loudon Wainwright III, Meg Hutchinson and Antje Duvekot. She has performed at well-known regional venues such as Club Passim, The Iron Horse, The Dream Away Lodge, and The Parlor Room.
As shy as a morning glory at night. Born and raised in Virginia's Shenandoah Valley. Aspires to make songs that tell stories and/or keep secrets. (Both at once is a tall order.) A wintry, autumnal album called White Halloween in twenty fifteen. Here lately, song as keepsake, time capsule, dream journal. Believes puns are funny, not just clever.
