The Bolton/Munkres family band, Honey in the Hive, will be performing driving fiddle and banjo music, a few songs, and step-dancing from Appalachian, Cape Breton, Irish and other traditions. The concert is a fundraiser for Ben and Romy Munkres’ musical tour in April with Young Tradition Vermont. There will be refreshments for sale, as well as CDs, raffle tickets, and other fundraising items. Admission is by freewill donation. The concert will begin with the family band and then close with a set by Romy and Ben, Young Tradition Vermont Contest winners.

Honey in the Hive is a family band including: Romy on fiddle, flute, and feet; Ben on piano, mandolin and accordion; Andrew Munkres on 5-string banjo, guitar and accordion; and Kristin Bolton on upright bass and feet. Honey in the Hive has performed at events in Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine.

Teenagers Romy and Ben Munkres won the Young Tradition Vermont contest last May. They have performed as a duo at dances and festivals in Vermont and New Hampshire. They both toured with Young Tradition to Ireland, Cape Breton, Quebec and Scotland. Romy Munkres also toured Vermont’s sister state, Tottori, Japan with Young Tradition Vermont (YTV).

YTV is a non-profit organization that inspires young people to learn and perform traditional music, then ultimately give back to the community. The Touring Group is one of YTV’s many programs, and its focus is to promote connections between people locally, nationally and internationally by performing, sharing and studying traditional music and dance.
