    Ken & Brad Kolodner (2010)
    Fenchurch Music 05

    Ken Kolodner (hammered dulcimer, fiddle, hammered mbira) and
    Brad Kolodner (clawhammer banjo, banjola)
    with Elke Baker (fiddle) and Paul Oorts (guitar)

    "This is old time music played in the purest way: at home, with family, with heart, and with a creative curiosity that lets all listeners know that a passion for traditional music yet thrives in every generation."

    Dulcimer Player News April 2011

    "Ken Kolodner is a world class multi-instrumentalist...Otter Creek is a joyous recording featuring two fine musicians who playing excellently. There must be something special to that father-son thing."

    Sing Out! April, 2011

    "Ken is regarded as one of the finest hammered dulcimer players today. What makes this recording special is that Ken collaborates with his son Brad who plays the banjo and banjola. It is what folk music is all about in my opinion. I would also recommend that when you preview the CD do so on good equipment (not a car CD player or cheap computer speakers) otherwise you may miss the tight, intricate, and interesting arrangements"

    DJ Mark Pederson, WOJB Folkways, Barron, WI

    Three years ago, I had no idea that a beginner banjo class would take me down a path of music that has changed my life. Growing up in a music-filled household, I could hardly bear the sound of novice fiddle and hammered dulcimer students taking lessons from my father. It wasn't until recently that I finally decided to pay attention to the music and realize what a pleasure it can be to listen to and play. The banjo quickly became a newfound passion that has introduced me to so many new people and musical styles. I would have never imagined that I would be consumed with the joy of playing music but here I am!" — Brad Kolodner
