House of Hamill Concert May 5th

April 28, 2019

Escanaba, MI – House of Hamill will perform in the Bonifas Arts Studio, 7001 on 1st Avenue South in Escanaba, MI on Sunday, May 5th from 7:00-9:00 pm. The doors will open at 6 pm. Admission is free, but a donation will be accepted at the door.

This duo consists of Rose Baldino (of Burning Bridget Cleary) and Brian Buchanan (of Enter the Haggis).

“House of Hamill is on the bleeding edge of a new generation of traditional musicians. Brian and Rose are both accomplished traditional fiddle players and classical violinists, and despite being young, have over 25 years of writing and performance experience between them. Together, they write unusual new fiddle tunes and exciting, unpredictable original songs while also 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.” –
