Sophisticated indie Irish folk trio House of Hamill will make their inaugural appearance at Old Sloop Presents Saturday, April 29.
Pennsylvania-based House of Hamill is a fixture on festival stages across the US and have 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 not-to-be-missed video for their all-violin cover of Sweet Child O’ Mine amassed over 16 million views on Facebook. Their latest release, Folk Hero, perfectly captures 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, “Folk Hero” is the third House of Hamill album to be funded entirely by their fans.
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.
