Music in Bass Hall presents the father-son duo of Ken and Brad Kolodner playing a concert of Appalachian folk music at Monadnock Center for History and Culture on Friday, May 13, at 7:30 p.m.

Master of the hammered dulcimer, Ken Kolodner is also an accomplished fiddler. He uses both instruments to explore the intricacies of traditional Appalachian music. His son, Brad Kolodner, represents the next generation of old-time musicians pushing the boundaries of the tradition into uncharted territory.

Clawhammer banjo is experiencing a rebirth in American folk music, and Brad is helping to lead the movement as a performer, teacher,  DJ for WAMU’s Bluegrass Country, jam leader and ambassador for old-time music.

The Kolodny duo honors the tradition, yet introduces new, innovative, and energizing elements that reinforce its purity.

Admission is $18 and $15 for Monadnock Center members, seniors, and students.

Reservations can be made online at, or by calling 924-3235.
