Playing together since 2002, the trio of Fire in the Kitchen is an outstanding acoustic group that plays Appalachian, Celtic, folk and Old-time music.  Based in Washington County, VA, Fire in the Kitchen’s unique sound is created by the beautiful hammered dulcimer playing of Tammy Martin, the bass and guitar skills of Teddy Helton and the hauntingly beautiful sounds of the penny & low whistle playing of Debbie Shrewsbury. 

Fire in The Kitchen has performed at a variety of venues, locally and regionally, including 30 performances at Dollywood’s Festival of Nations, The Carter Family Fold, Bristol Rhythm ‘N Roots, The Virginia Highlands’ Festival, Clinch Mountain Fest, Gathering in the Gap, The Blue Ridge Celtic Festival, Winston-Salem Celtic Festival and many, many more.  The group has also been featured on Public radio programming “Live in Studio 1A" as well as several appearances on the award-winning television PBS series, Song of the Mountains, which can be seen on public television affiliates throughout the country.  The group has recorded 3 CDs and was honored to have their first CD "An Appalachian Celtic Journey" archived in the Smithsonian Folklife Museum in celebration of the Year of Appalachia. The first and second CD, "The Journey Continues" features a mix of Celtic and Old time tunes and their latest CD "Drive the Cold Winter Away" is a Christmas collection.
