UUCB Concerts for a Cause presents the upcycled Celtic folk trio, House of Hamill at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Brunswick on Saturday, May 17 at 7:30 p.m. to raise money for two local charities TBD. 

House of Hamill features Brian Buchanan and Rose Baldino of the Celtic folk-rock band Enter the Haggis.  They are both accomplished traditional fiddle players and classical violinists, with over 25 years of writing and performance experience between them. They write unusual new fiddle tunes and exciting, unpredictable original songs while breathing new life into traditional and contemporary songs.  A third full-time member, Caroline Browning, recently joined the duo, playing bass, mandolin, and vocals. Their music occupies a space between traditional Irish and sophisticated indie folk.

The third House of Hamill CD, “Folk Hero”, was released in late 2021. It has received strong support from folk radio programming, holding the #5 Top Album spot for January and February 2022 on the Folk-DJ charts.

House of Hamill has shared their music and stories on the country’s premier folk stages. Their version of “Pound a Week Rise” rose to #1 on the US Folk DJ charts, and the video for their all-violin cover of “Sweet Child O’ Mine” amassed over 16 million views on Facebook, where it was shared over 400,000 times. Their latest release, “Folk Hero,” captures perfectly the frenetic energy and eclecticism of their always engaging live show. A lively collection of original instrumentals, reimagined folk ballads, and new songs that showcase the trio’s versatility,

Whether they’re ripping through a set of original jigs and reels, adding lush three-part harmonies into traditional folk ballads, or cracking up an audience with stories from the road, House of Hamill puts on a show that captivates audiences from the very first note.

Tickets are $25 in advance, $30 at the door, and $10 for students/children and will be available at the church office, Gulf of Maine Books, or online at ticketstripe.com/houseofhamill3.
