Rose Baldino and Brian Buchanan are accomplished traditional fiddle players and classical violinists, with over 25 years of writing and performance experience between them. Together, they write unusual new fiddle tunes and exciting, unpredictable original songs while breathing new life into traditional and contemporary songs. Both are confident and unique lead vocalists, and the blend of their two voices in harmony is hypnotic and irresistible.
Whether House of Hamill is playing songs from their debut album "Wide Awake" (2016) or stomping through a set of original jigs and reels from their follow-up "March Through Storms" (2018), their chemistry onstage is always engaging and often hilarious. In the summer of 2018, their quirky all-violin cover of "Sweet Child Of Mine" went viral, amassing over 15 million views and more than 400,000 shares on Facebook in just a few weeks, and was picked up by publications all over the world.
House of Hamill is on the bleeding edge of a new generation of traditional musicians.
Accomplished local players Chris Lindsay and Andrew Dodds will open the evening. They have performed together for years as members of The Devil’s Tailors and as a duo since 2016. Chris is a veteran performer of over 20 years of the Celtic scenes in three key regions; the Midwest, upstate New York and the Washington, D.C.- area. Andrew was a member of Iona and is now a member of the Ocean Orchestra. He’s won nearly every regional Scottish fiddle competition in the Mid-Atlantic, and placed 2nd in the U.S. National Scottish Fiddle Championship.
