Music in Bass Hall presents the Ken and Brad Kolodner Trio

May 11 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Ken and Brad Kolodner with Rachel Eddy

One of the most influential hammered dulcimer players and old-time fiddlers in the U.S., Baltimore’s Ken Kolodner has joined forces with his son Brad Kolodner, a rising star in the claw hammer banjo world to 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.” Get your tickets early!

Ken and Brad are joined by one of the most acclaimed old-time musicians around, the fabulous multi-instrumentalist Rachel Eddy. 

Ken and Brad started performing regularly as a duo in 2009 and in 2011, they released their first recording, Otter Creek, which became the most played instrumental recording on the international Folk-DJ Radio charts. Sing Out! wrote, “Ken Kolodner is a world class multi-instrumentalist…Otter Creek is a joyous recording featuring two fine musicians who playing excellently. There must be something special to that father-son thing.” 

Concert appearances for the duo include The Kennedy Center, The Birchmere, The Champlain Valley Folk Festival, The Creative Alliance, three appearances at Helicon’s Winter Solstice concerts with Robin Bullock and Chris Norman, several appearances on the legendary “Bound for Glory” radio show in Ithaca, NY (the longest running live concert-radio broadcast in the United States), The Common Ground Festival in MD, The Mountain Arts Gathering in NY, The Folk Society of Greater Washington, The Baltimore Banjo Showcase as well as numerous other live radio broadcasts, concerts and festivals along the Eastern seaboard from North Carolina to Vermont to Wisconsin.

Listen to Ken and Brad here. 

Rachel Eddy was born and raised in rural West Virginia, where her musical family inspired her to play and sing as a little girl. She grew up listening to local fiddlers, her father among them, going to old-time festivals, and attending square dances. The old-time bug bit her early in life and Rachel now performs and teaches full-time on fiddle, banjo, guitar, mandolin and bass.
