“This type of music would be comfortable at the Grand Ole Opry, Austin City Limits and they wouldn’t get kicked off that old fogey classic Lawrence Welk Show either. It’s that’s diversified, satisfying and most importantly, good. “
Locust Honey is Chloe Edmonstone and Meredith Watson. They perform a mix of old-time, bluegrass and blues – singing vintage harmonies on both original and traditional songs . Both musicians are multi-instrumentalists and play fiddle, banjo, and acoustic/resonator guitars.
If you would like to attend the house concert with Locust Honey on Sunday, March 18, please rsvp with Tim at email@example.com. Potluck at 6 pm, Music at 7 pm.
The video below is of the song Blue, written by Meredith and featured on the soundtrack of the 2017 film ‘The Dinner’ starring Richard Gere. This wasn’t their first song to be picked up for a movie – When the Whiskey’s Gone was on the soundtrack for the 2014 film “Time Out of Mind” and Locust Honey’s rendition of Lost Girl was on the 2016 film “The Ticket”.
On Sunday, December 3, 2017 Hasee Ciaccio will be at Chestnut House Concerts with three fellow musicians providing an evening of music called WINTER JUBILEE: MUSIC & MEMORIES FROM THE MOUNTAIN SOUTH. Winter Jubilee will feature Tyler Hughes (banjo), Sam Gleaves (guitar), Emily Mann (fiddle) and Hasee (bass).
Potluck at 6 pm, Music at 7. RSVP with Tim at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hasee, now touring with Molly Tuttle, previously performed at Chestnut House Concerts with The Barefoot Movement. Here’s a video of Hasee and bass player Billy Gee.
Kaitlyn Raitz (cello, vocals) and Ben Plotnick (fiddle, vocals)
The relationship between the violin and the cello is age-old and has been proven time and time again, but as soon as Kaitlyn and Ben began to play and sing together, it became clear that something was different. Decades of experience as chamber musicians helped them to blend instantly, but it’s their spontaneous, energetic yet subtle approach to folk music that sets them apart.
We learned to know Kaitlyn and Ben when they appeared at Chestnut House Concerts in 2015 with Ozere. They’ve been busy the past two years relocating to Nashville and forming their new band while being involved in other music projects as well.
Preceding all of our shows is a potluck at 6 pm. It is optional but most attendees consider this a time to get to know others from the community, and the potluck has amazing items from hot dishes to desserts. The venue provides the plates/napkins/silverware/glasses.
“Tickets” are 15-20 per person and you can make your donation at the bin near the door when you arrive. All money goes to the musicians.
RSVP with Tim at email@example.com or by texting/calling 717-940-9311. We hope to see you on the 14th!
