Marlboro Music Festival

Marlboro Music Festival

Marlboro Music is widely recognized as the leading center for advanced professional training in music. Described by The New Yorker as "the classical world's most coveted retreat," it is where the concept of having master artists play together with exceptional young professionals was born. Under the artistic direction of pianists Mitsuko Uchida and Jonathan Biss, musicians share the inspired results of their intensive chamber-music collaborations in open rehearsals and weekend concerts from July 13 to August 11, 2019 on the campus of Marlboro College. Each week, groups who feel that they have achieved especially successful results recommend their works for performance. As a result of this dynamic scheduling process, concert repertoire or personnel are announced one week in advance. Audiences share in a spirit of discovery, experiencing exciting young musicians and hearing insightful interpretations of chamber music masterworks and unfamiliar pieces played with great passion and joy.

Folk Concert at Old West Church

Folk Concert at Old West Church

On Sunday, July 21, 2019 at 4:00 pm, the 21st Annual Folk Music Concert celebrates master folk musician Pete Sutherland and his Posse, Vermont's own trad-roots power trio! Composed of acclaimed musician Pete, his talented protégé Oliver Scanlon and the uber-dynamic Tristan Henderson, Pete's Posse never fails to surprise and excite! Twin fiddles in tight, wild harmony over high-powered guitar and pounding foot percussion with mandolin, clawhammer banjo, jaw harp, rocking keyboards, and soaring vocal harmonies adding color to the Posse's sonic landscape. Joining Deb and Pete are fiddler Jane Oxnard, native of Northumberland, England, VSO cellist John Dunlop and violin/fiddler Laura Markowitz.
General admission is $20 at the door. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Vermont Folklife Center.

The annual folk concert has been organized by singer Deb Flanders in honor of her great-aunt Helen Hartness Flanders, an internationally recognized ballad collector and authority on folk music found in New England and in the British Isles.

Music by the River - Ken and Brad Kolodner in Woodstock

Music by the River - Ken and Brad Kolodner in Woodstock

Dulcimer

The dynamic father-son duo Ken & Brad Kolodner weave together a captivating soundscape on hammered dulcimer, banjo and fiddles pushing the boundaries of the Old-Time tradition into uncharted territory. Regarded as one of the most influential hammered dulcimer players and Old-Time fiddlers in North America, Baltimore’s Ken Kolodner has joined forces with his son Brad Kolodner, a rising star in the clawhammer banjo world. Together, they infuse their own brand of driving, innovative, tasteful and unique interpretations of traditional and original fiddle tunes and songs. They 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.” In concert, they regularly perform as a trio with bassist Alex Lacquement who locks everything together with his commanding and tasteful choices. They also perform on occasion with multi-instrumentalist Rachel Eddy (fiddle, banjo, guitar and vocals), a former member of the Old-Time supergroup Uncle Earl.
