Join the Kolodner’s for an intimate backyard concert featuring some of the finest old-time musicians around. 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. Staples of the national old-time music scene, Richie Stearns & Rosie Newton, are a highly-accomplished old-time duo from Ithaca, NY.
Richie Stearns and Rosie Newton are a dynamic duo performing music rooted in the Americana tradition. Over the past four years they have collaborated in various projects and formed the duo after hours of jamming in Stearns' kitchen, experimenting with traditional and original songs. Stearns is a legendary banjo player and singer, and has led bands including the Horse Flies, and Donna the Buffalo. He has also played with countless others, and tours with Natalie Merchant. He is steeped in the traditions of American old-time music, Appalachian folk, blues, African, rock, and country music.
Rosie Newton is a talented fiddler and singer at the beginning of her music career. She graduated from Ithaca College with a degree in viola performance, and has become an integral part of the Ithaca old-time music community. Newton tours with The Duhks, Louisiana legend Preston Frank, Red Dog Run, the Evil City Stringband, Home Remedy and occasionally The Pearly Snaps. She has taught fiddle at Sunshine Coast School of Celtic music, the Taylor Music Festival and the Black Pot Camp. Richie Stearns and Rosie Newton take the fiddle, banjo combination to new levels as they continue to expand the boundaries of this tradition.
