Join the Kolodner’s for an intimate backyard concert featuring some of the finest old-time musicians around, Furnace Mountain and special guest Rachel Eddy. This is our 6th year doing this concert in the intimate setting of the Kolodner's backyard! Previous guests have included The Honey Dewdrops, Erynn Marshall & Carl Jones, Richie Stearns & Rosie Newton, Bill Schmidt & Ann Porcella, and Matching Orange. Widely known as one of the top hammered dulcimer players in the U.S. and a fine old-time fiddler, Baltimore’s Ken Kolodner is joined by his son, Brad Kolodner who has rapidly gained national recognition for his driving yet subtle old-time clawhammer banjo playing. Joining Ken & Brad will be Alex Lacquement on bass and Rachel Eddy (fiddle, guitar, banjo and vocals). In addition to performing with Ken & Brad, Alex performs in Charm City Junction along with Brad and in The Bumper Jacksons. Rachel Eddy
Though often overshadowed by Southwest Virginia and its famed Crooked Road, the Shenandoah Valley and Virginia’s northwestern counties have always been fertile ground for traditional music, and they continue to be home to many of its finest practitioners. The region is situated between the Appalachian hills of West Virginia and the culturally diverse and ever-changing Washington, D.C., metropolitan area, and is known for producing musicians who transcend generic categories, deftly taking traditional music styles in new directions. Furnace Mountain, named for a mountain near where all the members grew up, consists of some of the most innovative and gifted young musicians in Virginia. With Aimee Curl on bass and vocals, Danny Knicely on mandolin and fiddle, Dave Van Deventer on fiddle, and Morgan Morrison on guitar, bouzouki, and vocals, the band creates music that is at times lively and raucous, with spirited fiddle melodies weaving in and around the powerful rhythms of the bass and bouzouki, and other times poignant and poetic, with sublime vocal harmonies beautifully interpreting some of the oldest songs ever written. Furnace Mountain has performed throughout the world, from the Yangtze River in China to the banks of the Shenandoah River, where they are the host band of Watermelon Park Festival, held on the site of one of the very first bluegrass festivals, in 1965. Furnace Mountain plays music from the American Appalachian traditions, as well as original compositions, and songs penned by their favorite song writing friends.
