Acoustic band Poisoned Dwarf brings the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day to the Hampton History Museum with an evening of music from the Emerald Isle TONIGHT, 6:00 p.m. – 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. During the day, the six members work for the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation in various areas. 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.
Admission is free to museum members, $5.00 for non-members. Beer and wine will be available for purchase from La Bodega Hampton.
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. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. Seating and capacity are limited.
