Editors Note: This is Part 2 of our first dinner series with The Wild Honey Pie. If you haven’t caught Part 1 featuring Rosie Carney, you can read it here.
In late June, we hosted another unforgettable night with The Wild Honey Pie proving that their "A Dinner Party with…" series is basically event nirvana.
Focusing on co-mingling the senses, our second event combined an incredible Mediterranean meal paired with complimentary cocktails and a wildly impressive performance by singer-songwriter, Miya Folick.
A powerhouse vocalist, Miya Folick is part spacey alt-pop and part anthemic grunge rock. Perhaps more accurately described as a wholly atmospheric arrangement of sounds anchored by her vocals.
Before the room was lured towards Folick's hypnotic vocals, attendees dinned and dinned well. The talented staff at Checker Hall served a delicious three-course rustic Mediterranean meal leading in with classic hummus and pita. An entree of Mediterranean chicken with couscous and tahini brownie bites followed.
Each course paired harmoniously with the subtle notes of orange and honey in our original Rock and Rye. Guests ordered Slow & Low Old Fashioned and 1884 Juleps (the mint was such a great complement to the meal).
Miya took to the stage just as dessert was being served, humbly introduced herself and began to serenade the crowd. Playing songs off of her debut LP, Premonitions, Folick captivated the room.
Currently touring across the States with Bishop Briggs, seeing Folick perform in a setting for fifty really feels like a novelty. And we don't think we're too bold in saying everyone who was in the room that night feels the same way.
We had the pleasure of connecting with Miya for our latest Straight-Up Q&A. We chatted about her first public serenades, favorite snacks, and more. You can check it below.
