Watermelon Sugar

Location: R.A. Fountain

Watermelon Sugar, a folk bluegrass duo from Washington, DC and Asheville, was making its Fountain debut.

Hypatia Kingsley and Louise Bendall began performing together in 2001, and their third CD is set for release this summer. They play a variety of stringed instruments — guitars, banjo, violin, and mandolin — and are particularly noted for their vocal harmonies.

Named for the Richard Brautigan classic of the 1960s, Watermelon Sugar maintains an active touring schedule throughout the eastern seaboard coffee house circuit.
