Fiddle Summit Showcase
Friday, January 5, 8pm
Shepherdstown Presbyterian Church
This annual concert presents some of the finest fiddlers from a variety of traditions, including Cape Breton, English, Scottish, Irish, New England, Gypsy Jazz, and Appalachian into a showcase concert with some extraordinary accompaniment. Elke Baker and, Sean Heely and Laura Risk are all national Scottish Fiddle champions whose fiery renditions of Scottish and Cape Breton fiddle music are in great demand, but all are incredible versatile, and known for other styles as well including English, Irish and Quebecois style fiddling. Old-time fiddle wizard, Rachel Eddy, has been steeped in the traditional music of West Virginia all her life, and has garnered praise and prizes for her music both at home and abroad. She regularly performs with the Pittsburgh band, The Early Mays, and with Ken and Brad Kolodner. Baltimore-based clawhammer banjo player, Brad Kolodner, represents the next generation of Old-Time musicians pushing the boundaries of the tradition into uncharted territory. Regarded for his delicate touch, expressive style, and original compositions, Kolodner has rapidly gained national attention for his unique approach to the banjo. Joined by versatile bassist, Alex Lacquement who plays with him in the highly acclaimed band Charm City Junction, and his father, the highly acclaimed hammered dulcimer player and fiddler, Ken Kolodner, they form a powerful quartet. Pianist and composer, Dave Wiesler is a consummate dance musician of many styles, and last, but not least, Belgian-born, Paul Oorts is a multi-instrumentalist whose fine accompaniment enriches such bands as the Gigmeisters, Gold Crest and Cabaret Sauvignon. Together, this incredible line-up promises to bring a night of enchantment to all who love the folk violin. Co-sponsored with Upper Potomac Fiddle Retreat. Jam session to follow.
