Widely known as one of the foremost and most influential hammered dulcimer players in the U.S. and a fine old-time fiddler, Baltimore’s Ken Kolodner (hammered dulcimer, fiddle, hammered mbira) has joined forces with his son, Brad Kolodner (vocals, claw hammer banjo, banjola, fretless banjo, guitar, fiddle) to perform tight and musical arrangements of original and oldtime music “played in the purest way” on twin fiddles, banjo, guitar, hammered dulcimer and more. Father and son have just released their second album, “Skipping Rocks” Joining Ken and Brad is the National Scottish Fiddle Champion Elke Baker (fiddle, viola), whose playing has been said to be a “rare delight,” with “precise technical skill, and fulness of soul” (Celtic Beat) and capable “to make hearts bleed” (The Frederick News). Elke and Ken perform a rich variety of Scottish, Quebecois and Irish music, original compositions, and refreshing, foot-stomping Old Time twin fiddling that’ll bring the house down.
