On Sunday, February 16th at 4:00 p.m., Tim McWilliams and William Ritter will perform in the Great room at FENCE. This event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served following the performance. 


Tim McWilliams & William Ritter met in Boone, NC while both were attending Appalachian State University, pursuing their M.A. in Appalachian Music. While they picked together all of the time in the High Country, they did not start performing together until 2019. When you see and hear Tim McWilliams and William Ritter playing together, one thing is immediately clear: They are having a heck of a good time. Tim’s flatpicking and bluesy vocals blend with William’s harmonies and old-time infused fiddling to offer up a distinctive and infectiously fun sound. Their shows feature classic fiddle tunes, bluegrass, and lots of music by their heroes: Doc Watson, Ray Price, Hank Williams, Tim O’Brien, Norman Blake and others.
