January’s Coffeehouse at the Walton Theatre, sponsored by Music on the Delaware, will welcome The Vollmers to the Andrea Retz Paternoster stage. Brian Vollmer and Claire Byrne are a husband-and-wife team from Binghamton who perform together as The Vollmers.
When The Vollmers first began their courtship, they would spend the bitter and snowy winter evenings playing tunes and singing together. It was during that time that they decided to book some shows. Fast forward 10 years, Brian and Claire are married with two small boys. Life is busy and full but the music thrives.
With Brian alternating between 3-finger banjo, clawhammer banjo and fiddle and Claire alternating between guitar and fiddle, The Vollmers’ sound encompasses a wide array of Appalachian music. From hard-driving bluegrass to folk songs and old-timey fiddle tunes, the show is endearing, gritty and heartfelt. This is folk music at its finest, music for the people.
Desserts and tea/coffee will be served. Donations for Music on the Delaware are appreciated.
