Rose Baldino and Brian Buchanan met ten years ago, backstage at a theatre in rural Pennsylvania. Brian’s band Enter The Haggis and Rose’s group Burning Bridget Cleary were sharing a stage that evening.
Tommie Ryan and a group of Their paths crossed a dozen times over the next decade on the road, but it wasn’t until 2104 that they became musical collaborators. Baldino and Buchanan are both accomplished traditional fiddle players and classical violinists. Together, they write unusual new fiddle tunes and exciting, unpredictable original songs while also breathing new life into traditional and contemporary songs. They recently released their second album, “March Through Storms,” which features a viral all-violin version of Sweet Child o’ Mine.

House of Hamill performs on Friday, July 12 at 8pm on the Fifth Province Stage and Sunday, July 14 at 7pm on the Folk Stage.
