Ted Yoder in Concert
Internet video sensation Ted Yoder brings his hammered dulcimer to the Brookfield Unitarian Universalist Church in Brookfield, MA for a concert at 7:00 p.m. on Nov. 10, 2018.
Ted Yoders cover of Tears for Fears Everybody Wants to Rule the World became one of the most-watched Facebook Live posts in 2016, with more than 101 million views from fans around the world. When a barefooted Yoder performed the hit on his hammered dulcimer in his Indiana familys backyard with their pet raccoon, he immediately became an Internet sensation known as Dulcimer Dad. His unique performance style in popular songs including Journeys Dont Stop Believing, The Beatles Eleanor Rigby, and classics such as Amazing Grace and The Little Drummer Boy has become known as Yoderizing.
For all the Internet hoopla, Ted Yoder is a musician with real chops. His talent and showmanship are steeped in an Appalachian musical tradition with origins that can be traced back to 300 BCE in Greece. He has played the dulcimer for decades and won Americas National Hammered Dulcimer Championship in 2010. Until you hear Ted Yoder, it is impossible to imagine that one wooden stringed instrument can sound like an entire rock band or a whole symphony orchestra all in one.
Yoder has released five solo albums and been featured in Huffington Post and on NPRs All Things Considered. His first performance in Massachusetts will be November 10, 2018 at the Brookfield Unitarian Universalist Church, 9 Upper River Street, On the Brookfield Common, at 7:00 p.m. Tickets are $15 and are available through BrownPaperTickets.com or for cash at the door.
