Timberwood is a husband and wife acoustic duo based in Saint Augustine, Florida. Greg hails originally from suburban Chicago, and was inspired to play the guitar by the likes of Randy Rhoads, Kirk Hammett, and Tony Iommi. Heather was born in the foothills of West Virginia, and lived all over the world. Raised to love classical music and opera, she would secretly listen to the rock and pop music of the 80's and 90's. After formal training, Greg and Heather met as private music teachers in Virginia in 2006, married in 2009, and moved to Florida in 2012 after the the birth of their daughter. Timberwood began when Greg and Heather were asked to perform a small set at City Coffee Company in Saint Augustine. What happened next was a three hour set of simple, acoustic renditions of their favorite songs. Now, they perform both signature covers and original songs throughout Georgia and Florida. Timberwood has been called haunting and soulful, often bringing audience members to tears of joy. They will record their first full length album in December of 2018.
The Minstrel is a concert series run by the Folk Project, a non-profit folk music and arts organization. We use the facilities of the Morristown Unitarian Fellowship, 21 Normandy Heights Road, Morristown, NJ. We hold shows every Friday, year round, and the second Friday of the month is an open stage/audition night. The music we present is "folk" music in its broadest sense. That is, in addition to traditional American and ethnic "folk" music (in its purist definition), we welcome music of contemporary, primarily acoustic songwriters, and other types of music more folkie in attitude than in content. Shows start at 7:30 PM; dress is casual. We serve coffee, teas, and baked goods. There is no alcohol or tobacco on the premises. Admission is inexpensive; on our regular Friday concerts we ask $10.00 on your way in, plus the rest of what you thought the show was really worth on your way out. This additional amount goes to supplement what we pay the feature performer. All tickets are sold at the door. No advance sales or reservations are necessary.
