CHARM CITY JUNCTION

The Wellsboro Community Concert Association is presenting a concert featuring Charm City Junction with Ken Kolodner at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 11 at the Deane Center Coolidge Theatre at 104 Main Street, Wellsboro.
From dance inducing old-time rhythms to foot stomping Irish melodies and hard-driving bluegrass, the Baltimore-based quartet of Patrick McAvinue on fiddle, Brad Kolodner on clawhammer banjo, Sean McComiskey on button accordion and Alex Lacquement on upright bass are blazing new trails in acoustic roots music while keeping an eye on tradition. Filling in for McAvinue for this concert will be Scotty Leach.

Since forming in 2014, Charm City Junction has taken the acoustic music scene by storm with its young members performing around the country, garnering national attention and praise for their high-energy, captivating and dynamic performances.

Called “phenomenal instrumentalists” and “excellent singers,” these top-notch musicians not only draw on their separate musical backgrounds as a bluegrass fiddler, old-time banjo picker, Celtic accordionist and jazz bassist but have also found common ground on which to develop their own unique approach.

Their self-titled debut album on the Patuxent Music label was released in the fall of 2015. Called “refreshing” and “smartly done,” this album mixes their styles beginning with a lively take on Bill Monroe’s “Frog On A Lily Pad” and continuing with “Margaret’s Waltz” from Pat Shaw, Anders Osborne’s “I’ve Got A Woman,” “The Torn Jacket” from Connie O’Connell and Ian Stephenson’s “Return from Helsinki.”

The other nine tracks are traditional, like the old-time classic “Last Chance,” Benny Martin’s “Two O’Clock in the Morning,” “New River Train,” “Train on the Island” and “Greasy Coat” and Irish tunes like Joe Bane’s “Barndance,” “The Bogs of Shanaheaver” and “Come West Along the Road.”

“If you love Irish music and have any interest at all in the sounds of bluegrass or old time music, you will definitely want to check this out, it’s a roots collaboration done right,” according to the Irish Echo, a weekly newspaper based in New York City.

In its travels, Charm City Junction has performed at Grey Fox, the Kennedy Center, the Delaware Valley Bluegrass Festival, Strathmore Hall and was an official showcase band at the 2015 IBMA Convention.

Performing with the band will be Ken Kolodner, world-renowned hammered dulcimer player and old-time fiddler. He and Brad, Baltimore’s nationally acclaimed father-son old-time roots duo, recently released a new album, "The Swift House," which rose to the top 10 on the Folk-DJ Charts. The Kolodners will be joined by Lacquement in playing selections from their newest album during the Wellsboro concert.

Tickets for this concert are $20 for adults and $5 for students and children. For tickets, visit www.wellsborocca.org or call 570-724-6220.
