No other instrument is as hot as the banjo these days. Tonight, masters of the instrument gather with a full backup band for a night of top-notch bluegrass, Irish, and old-time music. Famed bluegrass banjo player Mike Munford awes with his impeccable timing, exquisite tone, and jaw-dropping technique. World-renowned hammered dulcimer player Ken Kolodner joins forces with his son Brad on the clawhammer banjo offering tight, musical arrangements of original and traditional Appalachian old-time music. County Meath native Peter Fitzgerald is known for his mastery of the Irish-style tenor banjo and his encyclopedic recall of songs. The showcase includes Celtic guitarist Andy Thurston, and a wealth of talented musicians and vocalists. 8pm. $25, $20 mbrs.
"Father and son have reached that musical telepathy that family members can sometimes achieve. The blend of the hammered dulcimer and banjo is exceptional." -- The Old Time Herald on Ken & Brad Kolodner
