Ken and Brad Kolodner

$15 in online advance, and $17 phone reservation/door

The dynamic father-son duo Ken & Brad Kolodner are joined by Rachel Eddy on fiddle, guitar and vocals and Alex Laquement on bass. They weave together a mesmerizing soundscape on hammered dulcimer, banjo and fiddles and push the boundaries of the Old-Time tradition into uncharted territory. Regarded as one of the most influential hammered dulcimer players and Old-Time fiddlers in North America, Baltimore’s Ken Kolodner has joined forces with his son Brad Kolodner, a rising star in the clawhammer banjo world. Together, they infuse their own brand of driving, innovative, tasteful and unique interpretations of traditional and original fiddle tunes and songs. They perform tight and musical arrangements of original and traditional old-time music with a “creative curiosity that lets all listeners know that a passion for traditional music yet thrives in every generation.” In concert, they regularly perform as a trio with bassist Alex Lacquement who locks everything together with his commanding and tasteful choices and as a quartet they add multi-instrumentalist Rachel Eddy (fiddle, banjo, guitar and vocals), a former member of the Old-Time supergroup Uncle Earl.
