THE VIRGINIA PENINSULA – Fusing the musical heritage of the Appalachian mountains with ancient Celtic music, The Celtibillies will present a concert on Sunday, May 7 at 3 p.m. at the Mary T. Christian Auditorium on the Hampton campus of Thomas Nelson Community College. Tickets are $10 for students and $13 for adults.

Formed in 1994 as a contradance band, the Celtibillies began exploring the deep rooted connections between Celtic music and the Appalachian music of their home region of southwest Virginia. Their music expanded beyond dance tunes to include a wide range of traditional Celtic and Appalachian Old-Time music and song as well as original music. The band features Becky Barlow on hammered dulcimer, keyboard and bodhran, Jack Hinshelwood on fiddle and guitar, Tim Sauls on banjo, bouzouki and guitar, and Jeff Hofmann on bass. Celtibillies performances are an energetic mixture of duet vocal arrangements and spirited jigs, reels, waltzes and breakdowns.
