Who said there's nothing to do in York County.

York County is pleased to introduce the “Cabin Fever Concert Series,” set to take place this winter inside the Freight Shed located at Riverwalk Landing in historic Yorktown.

This first-time series will feature local musicians in an informal, friendly and close performance setting. The series kicks off on Thursday, Jan. 29, with a performance by renowned musician Timothy Seaman. Seaman, a Williamsburg resident since 1970, has continually been involved in music and has made it his sole endeavor since 1994. Timothy plays the hammered dulcimer, a large collection of flutes and whistles, psalteries, mountain dulcimer, percussion, and guitar with a unique emotive and sometimes powerful style.

On Thursday, Feb. 12, Stephen Bennett will be the featured musician. In live performance and on record, Bennett’s diverse musical influences and interests are joined with a lifelong love affair with the sound of guitar strings. Bennett is also one of the world’s premiere performers on the Harp Guitar, an instrument he indirectly inherited from his great-grandfather. As a composer and arranger, he has created an enduring repertoire and a significant body of recorded work for this instrument

The series concludes on Thursday, March 12, with a performance by Poisoned Dwarf. Poisoned Dwarf plays driving traditional Celtic music, with instruments including the Irish flute, whistle, guitar, Scottish Small-Pipes, banjo, a variety of percussion instruments (including bones and bodhran), accordion, and of course the fiddle.

Each concert will begin promptly at 7 p.m. Doors to the Freight Shed will open at 6:30 p.m. Guests are encouraged to be seated by 6:45 p.m.
]Due to a seating capacity in the Freight Shed, entry will require a ticket. Free tickets for each concert can be obtained starting Monday, Jan. 5 by calling the York County Parks and Recreation Office at (757) 890-3500 . A limited number of tickets can also be picked up in person at Nicks Riverwalk Restaurant, located at Riverwalk Landing in historic Yorktown. Tickets at the restaurant will be available Tuesday through Sunday during the months of January and February. Phone call inquires at the restaurant will not be accepted.
