Ken and Brad Kolodner

The dynamic father-son team Ken & Brad Kolodner weave together a captivating soundscape on hammered dulcimer, banjo, gourd banjo, hammered mbira, fiddles and vocals pushing the boundaries of the American Old-Time tradition into uncharted territory. The repertoire is largely drawn from what is known today by practitioners of “old-time” which is a style of North American music that preceded Bluegrass, dating back several centuries with strong African and Celtic roots. In addition to originals written in the style, expect some surprises! For the past year, the duo has performed regularly as a quartet with fiddler, guitarist and vocalist Rachel Eddy (The Early Mays), formerly of Uncle Earl, and bassist Alex Lacquement (The Bumper Jacksons, Charm City Junction). In early 2017, Ken & Brad released their first recording as a quartet: The Swift House which charted in the top ten on the Folk Music Charts. Together, they infuse their own brand of driving, innovative, tasteful and unique interpretations of traditional and original Old-Time tunes and songs with a “creative curiosity that lets all listeners know that a passion for traditional music yet thrives in every generation.”

 

Regarded as one of the most influential hammered dulcimer players and Old-Time fiddlers in North America, Baltimore’s Ken Kolodner (Helicon) joined forces in 2009 with his son Brad Kolodner (also Charm City Junction), one of the best practitioners of the clawhammer banjo world and a super fiddler as well. Rachel Eddy hails from West Virginia, where she grew up steeped in Appalachian music and dance. After learning fiddle from her father she graduated to guitar and banjo, and now works full-time teaching and performing Oldtime music around the world.  Rachel's multi-instrumental talents and soulful singing bring an energy to the stage you don't want to miss! One of the go-to bassists in the mid-Atlantic, Alex Lacquement locks it all together with his tasteful choices. In early 2016, The Ken & Brad Kolodner Quartet debuted at Germano's with their very first performance as a quartet.
