House of Hamill returns to the Isis Music Hall on Saturday, May 18 at 7 p.m..
House of Hamill’s music has been described as "Radiohead meets Riverdance;" Celtic-inspired, exciting, eclectic and unpredictable. It occupies a space between traditional Irish music and sophisticated indie/pop.
House of Hamill features Brian Buchanan and Rose Baldino. Asheville audiences may recognize Buchanan, one of the front-men with the Celtic folk-rock band, Enter the Haggis. Enter the Haggis has performed on area stages such as the Asheville Music Hall, the Grey Eagle and MerleFest.
Buchanan’s musical partner for this duo project is Rose Baldino, fiddler, vocalist, and for 12 years, bandleader of the Celtic folk band, Burning Bridget Cleary. Baldino’s band appeared at the WNC Highlands Celtic Festival and on “Live In-Studio B” at WNCW.
Baldino and Buchanan launched House of Hamill in 2015. The couple was married in 2017 and they began touring nationally. Their all-violin cover of the Guns n’ Roses song, “Sweet Child O’ Mine” went viral last summer, with over 15 million views and 400,000 shares.
House of Hamill’s second CD, “March Through Storms,” was released last June with strong support from folk radio programmers. The lead track, “Pound a Week Rise” was the #1 Top Song on the FOLK-DJ Charts for September.
Located in a former movie theater, the Isis Music Hall is a concert venue with a restaurant and bar, featuring national and regional musical acts. This is a lounge seated show. Dinner reservations can be made by calling 828-575-2737 between noon and 4 p.m. Showtime is 7 p.m. Doors open at 5 p.m.
