SARATOGA SPRINGS — National touring act House of Hamill will make their debut appearance at Caffé Lena at 8 p.m. on Saturday, May 7. 

House of Hamill features Brian Buchanan and Rose Baldino of the Celtic folk rock band, Enter the Haggis. A third full-time member joined the line-up last year: Asheville bassist and vocalist, Caroline Browning. Their music occupies a space between traditional Irish and sophisticated indie-folk.

The third CD by the Allentown, Pennsylvania based band - “Folk Hero” - was released in late 2021. It has received strong support from folk radio programming, holding the #5 Top Album spot for January and February 2022 on the Folk-DJ charts.

“It has been a tough couple of years for everyone, but we all feel so much lighter now, getting back to live music,” said Baldino, in a statement. “We’re ecstatic about playing our first show at Caffé Lena. We are honored to share this historic stage.”
