News Release, Southern Maryland Traditional Music & Dance (SMTMD)
Chaptico, MD- Coming to Southern Maryland for the first time, mark your calendar for House of Hamill. The SMTMD concert series is pleased to present this dynamic, fiddling, Celtic folk-rock duo, for one live evening performance on February 28th. Hailing from Philadelphia, PA, duo Rose Baldino and Brian Buchanan are accomplished traditional fiddle players as well as classically trained violinists. They seem to effortlessly blend heartfelt passion with technical brilliance in their delivery of original compositions, as well as breathe new life into familiar traditional and contemporary songs with their highly stylized arrangements. With powerful vocal harmonies providing a mesmerizing compliment to their compelling fiddle arrangements, House of Hamill has stewed up a complete, unique and beautiful sound. You will not want to miss this concert!
House of Hamill is on the leading edge of a new generation of traditional musicians. Whether playing songs from their debut album “Wide Awake” (2016) or stomping through a set of original jigs and reels from their follow-up “March Through Storms” (2018), their onstage chemistry reaches across generations into the audience, engaging music lovers with brilliantly played pieces and hilarious commentary. In the summer of 2018, their quirky all-violin cover of “Sweet Child of Mine” went viral, amassing over 15 million views and more than 400,000 shares on Facebook in just a few weeks. It was quickly disseminated by publications all over the world. For sound bites, go to https://www.houseofhamill.com/home.

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.
To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
