OAK HILL, Fla. -- Folk musicians Jeni & Billy will bring the high lonesome harmonies of the Appalachian Mountains in a return visit to Volusia County's smallest incorporated city 13 months from their last stop here.

They will perform at noon Saturday, Feb. 8, at VIA Hall, 126 E. Halifax Ave., Oak Hill, at noon Saturday, Feb. 8. They will perform 2 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 9,  at the Deltona Library.

Over the past several years, Jeni & Billy have traveled 150,000 miles throughout the U.S., Canada and Europe, performing at numerous venues, festivals and fiddlers' conventions and picking up ribbons in song writing, traditional folk singing, guitar picking, and flat-foot dancing.

Novelist Lee Smith wrote of the duo: "Jeni and Billy's stunningly original music is as old as the hills, yet brand new at the same time. Jeni is a true poet and a born storyteller, through and through -- many of her songs contain whole novels."
