Upcoming Events

Bill and Pam Gurley

The Northumberland County Historical Society will begin the holiday season with a performance by Bill and Pam Gurley on December 9, 2018 at 2:30 p.m.  “A Holiday Afternoon with Bill and Pam Gurley” is sure to please. The Gurley’s mix of folk, bluegrass, and blues with their unique dose of humor promises to be very enjoyable.

The Gurleys have deep roots in the Tidewater area of Virginia and are no strangers to NCHS audiences. They have been invited back many times to perform. They have also shared their unique blend of music from Maine to the Caribbean. From their very first date when they sang together, they have proven to be a talented musical duo. Bill is a multi-instrumentalist who plays guitar, banjo and fiddle with ease and masterful technique. Pam has a warm and captivating voice that listeners readily appreciate. The two have recorded several CDs together over the years. They also front a bluegrass band, known as the “Fiddlesticks.” 

When not playing music, Bill is teaching private music lessons and Pam is pursuing her other passion as a talented chef. The couple resides in the Northern Neck in an old family farm house that they have restored.

After their performance, the Gurleys will sell their CDs.  In addition, the NCHS will sell classical, seasonal and jazz harp CDs to benefit the Society.  A cornucopia of music CDs will thus be available for musical lovers of all genres on Sunday.  And, the Museum will be open to celebrate and commemorate World War I.
