___Helicon's 28th Annual Winter Solstice Concert
Dec 21, 2013...Here we go again!!
_"Helicon's brand of hypnotic Celtic-inspired dance rhythms makes a heady brew when mixed with this wide-ranging set of carols and winter songs. That Helicon's stylized treatment can tame and blend this eclectic set is a tribute to the solid musicianship of this talented trio. Their warm, understated take on the season will be a welcome relief for many from the droning familiarity of popular Christmas carols..." —Home Theater HI FI and The Albuquerque Alibi (December 2000)
The 28th Annual Winter Solstice Reunion Concert reunites Ken Kolodner (hammered dulcimer, fiddle), Robin Bullock (piano, guitar, cittern, mandolin) and Chris Norman (wooden flutes, tin whistle, small pipes, piano) of Helicon for their annual holiday celebration. Joining the fun this year are Brad Kolodner (clawhammer banjo, fiddle, vocals) and Alex Lacquement to celebrate the release of Skipping Rocks (Ken, Brad, Alex and Robin and Elke Baker all play on the new recording). And joining us once again is Irish step-dancer Jonathan Srour, with modern dancer Marlys Norman (Chris's daughter) along with Scottish National Fiddle Champion Elke Baker. On December 21, 2013, Helicon will perform two shows, at 3:30 and at 8:00, bringing to life seasonal Scottish, Irish, French Canadian, Appalachian and other world music. This year's venue provides an intimate setting at Kraushaar Auditorium on the campus of Goucher College, Towson MD. _
