"Naomi's Fancy" is a music group based out of Traphill, NC. The group plays traditional Irish and Scottish music, with some rock influences. The group was formed in October of 1997 as a jam session, and played their first gig in November of that year. They have stayed quite busy since then.
The group currently consists of three members - Naomi Orr, Stanley Widener, and Craig Sexton. Naomi plays the harp, flutes, and penny whistle. Craig plays the guitar, mandolin, bodhran, and concertina, Stanley plays the bouzouki, guitar, tenor banjo, and penny whistle (although not all at the same time).
"Naomi's Fancy" has played widely through Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, West Virginia and Tennessee. They have entertained at many various bars, coffeehouses, parties, weddings, colleges, contradances, and festivals. Their credits also include playing at the Festival Of Nations at Dollywood, The Sycamore Shoals Celtic Fest, Historic Bethabara Park, for the Irish Festival sponsored by Wake Forest Press, the High Point Theater, Dorton Arena, the "Dance of Nations" at VA Tech, local cable TV specials including the "Song Of The Mountains" concert and television series for PBS, and for the "Celtic Winds" radio program on NPR.
