Rooted in the traditions of American folk music, Charm City Junction, led by banjo wizard Brad Kolodner adds a modern riff to Old-Time music. They will be joined by accordion-virtuoso Billy McComiskey and Ken Kolodner, a renowned hammered dulcimer player. 

Regarded for his delicate touch, expressive style, and original compositions, Kolodner has rapidly gained national attention for his unique approach to the banjo. Old-time clawhammer & banjo is experiencing a rebirth in American folk music and Kolodner is helping to lead the charge as a performer, teacher, Strathmore Artist-in-Residence, radio DJ for WAMU’s Bluegrass Country, jam leader, community builder, and ambassador for old-time folk music.
