Brad Kolodner

Rooted in the traditions of Old-Time American folk music, Baltimore-based banjo wizard Brad Kolodner represents the next generation of Old-Time musicians pushing the boundaries of the tradition into uncharted territory. Regarded for his delicate touch, expressive style, and original compositions, Kolodner has rapidly gained national attention for his unique approach to the banjo at just 24 years of age. 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.
