Welcome!  Thank you for visiting our site.  We appreciate your interest in our music.
The Honey Chasers is a cutting edge Quartet based out of Johnson City Tennessee, each member is currently studying at East Tennessee State University's Bluegrass, Old Time and Country Music Program.  The Honey Chasers features Cameron Owens (mandolinist/vocalist) original material, performed in a quartet style featuring Fiddle, Guitar, and upright bass.  Meade Richter (world champion master fiddler) also highligths the 5 string electric fiddle in The Honey Chasers.  Jeff Ingersoll (guitar/vocal harmony), former guitar player for progressive bluegrass projects such as Sons of Bluegrass and The Ingersoll Brothers, brings flavors of traditional string jazz to The Honey Chasers' unique sound.  Zachary Smith (bass/harmony singing) has studied a wide variety of genres including celtic, jazz, bluegrass, and old time music.  With this interesting blend of influences and original musical ideas we've decided to classify our music as Modern Appalachian/Progressive Bluegrass.  Please feel free to take a look around and explore our music!  Keep an eye on our upcoming shows as well!

Blacksburg Fork and Cork Festival

Blackburg, VA


We are very excited to close out this festival on the main stage at this premium food, wine, music, and art festival. This is an awesome event, we highly recommend it to all of our fans!

(more details below) The Blacksburg Partnership, a non-profit economic development organization serving the Blacksburg area, announces plans for the 7th annual Fork and Cork festival on Saturday, May 2. Most significant to this year’s festivities is a new, spacious location at the Virginia Tech Corporate Research Center (CRC). “This will be a huge change for us,” said President Diane Akers. “We’re excited about the opportunity to revamp our festival layout, add to our vendor space, and create an even more enjoyable experience for our guests. Fork and Cork will be bigger and better than ever.”

The festival will take place at 1600 Innovation Drive. In addition to onsite parking, shuttles will once again be available from ­­­the Chicken Hill parking lot and from various lots within the CRC. A map of the festival location is available here, and a map of the Chicken Hill lot is available here.

This year, Fork and Cork attendees will sample wines from more than 20 wineries across the Commonwealth. The Wine 101 tent will host seminars throughout the day, and guests will have the opportunity to peruse the handmade creations of local artists and purchase food and wine-related gifts. Delicious festival fare will tempt appetites, with local restaurants offering an array of signature dishes to purchase and cooking demonstration areas showcasing the talents of regional chefs. There will be free tastings while they last. In addition, the festival will have an outstanding backdrop of live music from two stages.

“Our goal is to showcase the finest of Virginia wines to all of our attendees. We want Fork and Cork to become a yearly destination for Blacksburg locals and beyond,” said Blacksburg Partnership President Diane Akers.
