The Itinerant Band is made up of six musicians from the Tidewater region of southeastern Virginia. They come from diverse musical backgrounds and have a shared passion for history that has led them to specialize in the music of early America. They perform tunes and songs from the English, Irish, Scottish, Welsh and other European traditions that would have been heard in 17th and 18th century America. In the spirit of the itinerant colonial musicians whose style they emulate, you may find as few as two or as many as six of them at any given time and place performing everything from airs to sea shanties to dance tunes. When all together, the group consists of Rose Ann Arnaud on cello; Heather Barlow on fiddle and vocals; Bob Clark on hammered dulcimer, guitar and bones; Susan Lawlor on flute, whistle and recorder; Connie Smith on guitar, mandolin and vocals; and Vince Zentner on harp and flute.
