The Ken and Brad Kolodner Quartet
One World Coffeehouse
February 15th, 2020 7:00 pm to 9:30 pm
One of the most influential hammered dulcimer players in the US, Baltimore’s Ken Kolodner and his son Brad Kolodner, one of the finest practitioners of the clawhammer banjo, 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.” The dynamic father-son duo pushes the boundaries of the Appalachian tradition by infusing their own brand of driving, innovative, tasteful and unique interpretations of traditional and original fiddle tunes and songs. Performing on hammered dulcimer, fiddles, banjo, gourd banjo, hammered mbira, & guitar, the Kolodners perform frequently with bassist Alex Lacquement (Charm City Junction, The Bumper Jacksons) and multi-instrumentalist Rachel Eddy. The Quartet recently placed first out of nearly 50 bands from around the U.S. at The Neo-Traditional Band Contest at The Appalachian String Band Festival (“Clifftop”).
