The duo of Teresa Hamm and Stephen Cresswell will perform at the next Randolph County Community Arts Center's Brown Bag Concert, set for noon Wednesday.
The concert will feature a mixture of folk and Irish music. Hamm has been playing music since her father placed a guitar in her hands when she was a teenager. During the years, she has learned other instruments as well, including the banjo.
Hamm learned both technique and repertoire from older musicians, including Walter Sprouse of Albemarle County, Va., and Sarah Singleton of Braxton County.
Performing during the Brown Bag Concert at the Randolph County Community Arts Center at noon Wednesday will be Stephen Cresswell and Teresa Hamm.
In the last few years, Hamm has been joined in her music by her husband of 24 years, Cresswell, who sings and sometimes plays the tin whistle.
Hamm and Cresswell play songs from the old-time, folk and Irish traditions. They released a CD in 2008 titled "Sit Down and Sing."
This free monthly concert is sponsored by Davis Trust Co.
