The father-son duo Ken and Brad Kolodner 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, a rising star in the clawhammer banjo world. Together, they infuse their own brand of driving, unique interpretations of traditional and original fiddle tunes and songs. Bassist Alex Lacquement rounds out the trio and locks everything together. According to Dulcimer Player News, “This is old-time music played in the purest way: at home, with family, with heart, and with a creative curiosity that lets all listeners know that a passion for traditional music yet thrives in every generation.” For ticket information, visit www.acousticbrew.org/tickets/
