The banjo takes center stage on April 15 at the Creative Alliance for an evening of top-notch bluegrass, old-time, folk, and traditional African kora music featuring three of the Baltimore's most renowned acts: The Ken & Brad Kolodner Quartet, Mike Munford, and Amadou Kouyate.

He will be joined by renowned fiddler Patrick McAvinue of Charm City Junction for his set. The Ken & Brad Kolodner Quartet present their dynamic and inventive take on Old-Time music featuring local banjo wizard Brad Kolodner on clawhammer banjo, Ken on hammered dulcimer, Rachel Eddy on banjo, fiddle and vocals, and Alex Lacquement on bass. Amadou Kouyate is a hypnotizing 21-string kora player residing in Baltimore who comes from a long line of African kora players.
