Charm City Junction is a new band combining old-time, Irish, and bluegrass music into their own unique mix featuring Brad Kolodner on clawhammer banjo, Patrick McAvinue on fiddle, Sean McComiskey on button accordion, and Alex Lacquement on stand-up bass.
Regarded as one of the most influential hammered dulcimer players and old-time fiddlers in the US, Baltimore’s Ken Kolodner has joined forces with his son Brad Kolodner, a rising star in the clawhammer banjo world to perform tight and musical arrangements of original and traditional old-time music with a “creative curiosity that lets all listeners know that a passion for traditional music yet thrives in every generation.” The duo started performing regularly as a duo in 2009 and in 2011, they released their first recording, Otter Creek, which became the most played instrumental recording on the international Folk-DJ Radio charts. Brad’s original composition “Otter Creek” was the most played instrumental on the charts. Through performance and on the strength of Brad’s first recording, the recently named Strathmore Hall Artist In Resident and WAMU Bluegrass Country DJ has rapidly gained national recognition
for his delicate touch and writing. Ken & Brad released Skipping Rocks, their second album, in September 2013. In its first month, it became the 4th most played recording on the Folk-DJ Charts. Their latest project “is both technically impressive and musically tasteful, a lovely exploration of both tradition and creativity (and of a warm musical relationship)." (CD Hotlist).
