Appalachian folk concert Saturday
Ken and Brad Kolodner, a nationally-acclaimed father-son duo from Baltimore, Md., will be presenting a concert of Appalachian folk music at the Monadnock Center for History and Culture on Saturday at 7:30 p.m.
Ken has been playing hammered dulcimer for more than 30 years, and is considered one of the most influential players in the genre. He has made more than a dozen recordings, and has been featured extensively on traditional music radio programs, as well as “All Things Considered.”
Rooted in the traditions of Appalachian folk music, Brad represents the next generation of old-time musicians pushing the boundaries of the tradition into uncharted territory. He has r gained national attention for his unique approach to the banjo at just 22 years of age.
He plays a style of banjo common in American old-time music called “clawhammer.”
Admission is $15 and $12 for members, seniors and students. For more information and tickets, call 924-3235 or visit MonadnockCenter.org.
