On Friday, February 8, 2019, Delaware Friends of Folk will present the next event in their 2018-19 Old State House concert series, inside the Old State House on The Green in Dover. The series is produced in cooperation with the First State Heritage Park and is supported by grants from several local businesses. The concert is free and open to the public. The one hour performance will begin at 7:30 pm. Seating is limited.
The featured artists for the evening are the Dover-based duo of Steffi and Tim. It was a love for music and then each other that brought Steffi Holmes and Tim Plimpton together. First meeting at a study abroad trip to England in 2008 while students at the University of Delaware, the two compared musical notes and then spent time performing together as a hobby until marrying in 2013 and forming the duo Steffi and Tim. The two spent hours while in Newark in the school’s practice room just hanging out and performing together. Tim, who was a trombone major, is equally adept on the piano while Steffi is an accomplished singer. Currently, Steffi, a Dover native, is the Catholic director of music ministries at Dover Air Force Base and a private voice and beginning piano teacher while Tim, from Cherry Hill, New Jersey, is part of the music faculty at Wesley College and also praise and worship leader at Wesley United Methodist Church in Dover. The two have written dozens of songs; Steffi writes the words while Tim does the music. Their originals run the gamut from blues to easy listening. When not doing their own songs they perform standards that have stood the test of time such as “My Funny Valentine”, “Body and Soul”, and other tunes from the great American songbook.
The Old State House concert series is presented by Delaware Friends of Folk. These events are supported by grants from Bayside Studio, The Delaware Store, The Grill Store, Parke Green Galleries, and Perspectives Counseling Center. Support is also provided by the First State Heritage Park, a partnership of State and City agencies under the leadership of Delaware State Parks.  Delaware Friends of Folk are partially supported by grants from the Delaware Division of the Arts, a state agency, in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts.
