House of Hamill, the dynamic fiddling duo of Rose Baldino (Burning Bridget Cleary) & Brian Buchanan (Enter the Haggis) will headline the show.  Both Baldino and Buchanan are accomplished traditional fiddle players as well as 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. Confident and unique lead vocalists, 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" (September 2016) or stomping through a set of original jigs and reels, their chemistry onstage is always engaging and often hilarious. You'll leave with tired feet, a huge smile, and a new appreciation for the versatility of folk instruments in a modern context. House of Hamill is on the bleeding edge of a new generation of traditional musicians.

RoxPAC is a great local venue which can accommodate about 150 patrons, offers ample parking and is conveniently accessible from Routes 80, 46 and 10. Furnished with comfortable padded seating, great acoustics and theatre lighting, there is not a bad seat in the house! Concert goers will have plenty of time after the performance to enjoy dinner out at any number of local food establishments in town.
