Acoustic band Poisoned Dwarf keeps the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day going at the Hampton History Museum with an evening of music from the Emerald Isle on Wednesday, March 20, 6:00-8:00 p.m.

Poisoned Dwarf plays driving traditional Celtic music, with some melodies dating back centuries. Focusing primarily time-honored Irish music, and with acoustic instruments only, this band from Williamsburg, Virginia has entertained audiences in many different settings for years.

The band first formed in 2002, and gets its name from an old pipe tune. 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.

Poisoned Dwarf is: Stewart Pittman on uilleann pipes, whistle, bones and bodhran; Eric Hunter on guitar and banjo; Wayne Hill on fiddle and guitar; Lance Pedigo on bodhran, djembe, and percussion; and Thomas DeRose on flute, whistle and accordion.

Beer and wine will be available for purchase. Proceeds benefit the museum.

Admission is free to museum members, $5 for non-members. Seating and capacity are limited, and first come, first serve. Doors open at 5:30 pm.

Held in the Great Hall on the third Wednesday of each month, the Hampton History Museum’s Front Porch Music Series presents different genres of music that have shaped the American soundscape and influenced talent in Hampton Roads’ vibrant music scene. Seating and capacity are limited.

The Hampton History Museum is located at 120 Old Hampton Lane in Downtown Hampton. There is plenty of free parking in the garage across the street from the museum. For more information visit www.HamptonHistoryMuseum.org, Facebook/HamptonHistoryMuseum, or call 757-727-1102.
