Amanda Anne Platt and The Honeycutters

Their music has been described as Appalachian honky tonk, and being from the mountains of North Carolina, that’s maybe as close as it gets. But, The Honeycutters have a richer depth of character than that suggests – a factor that has won them a much wider span of appreciation around the world.
The five-piece boasts a powerful lead vocalist in Amanda Anne Platt, who has been rightly compared to some of the great female performers of the post-war years. Their albums attract 5-star ratings and have landed the band on many “Best-of” end-of-the-year lists.
