National Hammered Dulcimer champion

Ted Yoder

Sunday, October 15, 2017 @ 7:00PM

Tickets $15 in advance and at the door

The Folk Project, is is excited to invite you to a concert featuring the critically acclaimed musician Ted Yoder. Ted is widely considered “the Bela Fleck of the hammered dulcimer." Though he’s a visionary artist in his own right, the comparison holds water in that Ted profoundly reimagined his instrument of choice, inventing a fresh musical vocabulary along the way—“Yoderizing”—and his virtuosity is boundless. 

“There is a journey to creating a live music experience,” Ted says. “Your audience is waiting for you to take them someplace. When I get onstage, I strive to connect with their emotions, energy, and consciousness and take them away from their daily lives. I want our time together to give them hope, positivity, and encouragement.” 
  
The Goshen, Indiana-based instrumentalist-composer-singer forges meaningful bonds with the audience. His charisma and warm candor come through as he tailors each set to the energy of the audience.  Ted is also generous with unlocking the majesty and mystery of the hammered dulcimer before their eyes and ears. During shows he’s been known to take questions about the rarefied instrument, and sometimes even explain his unique approach to music making on the hammered dulcimer—a rare treat for fans and first timers experiencing this complex instrument.

Ted Yoder will perform at the home of a Folk Project member in New Providence, NJ. on Sunday, October 15, 2017 at 7:00 pm. Tickets are $15 in advance and at the door
