  2. Poisoned Dwarf

    March 20, 2019, 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM @ Hampton History Museum

    Keep the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day going a wee bit longer…Poisoned Dwarf returns for their annual presentation of driving traditional Celtic music, and for them, the tunes matter most. Focusing primarily on Irish traditional music, and with acoustic instruments only, this band from Williamsburg, Virginia has entertained audiences in many different settings for years. The Irish flute, whistle, guitar, Scottish Small-Pipes, banjo, a variety of percussion instruments (including bones and bodhran), accordion, and of course fiddle, are all brought to the dance for Poisoned Dwarf performances. Their love for the music and the playing of it is always obvious from the first note, so while listening to, and seeing Poisoned Dwarf’s melding of one tune after another, you’ll dance. Beer and wine will be available for purchase.

    March 20, 2019, 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM @ Hampton History Museum

    Keep the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day going a wee bit longer…Poisoned Dwarf returns for their annual presentation of driving traditional Celtic music, and for them, the tunes matter most. Focusing primarily on Irish traditional music, and with acoustic instruments only, this band from Williamsburg, Virginia has entertained audiences in many different settings for years. The Irish flute, whistle, guitar, Scottish Small-Pipes, banjo, a variety of percussion instruments (including bones and bodhran), accordion, and of course fiddle, are all brought to the dance for Poisoned Dwarf performances. Their love for the music and the playing of it is always obvious from the first note, so while listening to, and seeing Poisoned Dwarf’s melding of one tune after another, you’ll dance. Beer and wine will be available for purchase.
