The series continues on Saturday, May 16, at 7 p.m., with the brother and sister team Romy and Ben Munkres of Cornwall, Vt. Romy (fiddle, flute and feet) and Ben (piano, accordion, mandolin) have performed as a duo at dances and festivals in Vermont and New Hampshire, including Richmond’s Folk Night and the New World Festival in Randolph. They have both played with the Young Tradition Vermont touring group in several countries. Both have participated in the Vermont Youth Orchestra and the Vermont All State Music Festival.
