Hammered Dulcimer Masters
Ken and Brad Kolodner, Walt Michael and Company, Maggie Sansone
Masters of the hammered dulcimer come together for a night of rollicking Old-Time, Celtic, and Bluegrass music anchored by this complex, ancient and ethereal instrument. Internationally-renowned hammered dulcimer wizard Ken Kolodner will be joined by his son Brad Kolodner, a rising star in the old-time banjo world. The innovative multi-instrumentalist Walt Michael has been performing for nearly 40 years and has had a tremendous influence in the revival of the hammered dulcimer; he also happens to be the founder of the Common Ground on the Hill Festival. Rooted in the music of the Celts, Maggie Sansone is one of the most well-known and respected hammered dulcimer players in the country. Besides dulcimers, expect fiddles, guitar, banjos, bass, and pipes! 8pm | $25, $20 mbrs.
