Host artists and father-son duo Ken and Brad Kolodner have big plans for the inaugural Baltimore Old Time Music Festival.

Those include a Friday night concert, workshops, intimate performances from headline performers, and a Saturday night square dance, all to celebrate the music that made its way from Appalachia and cemented its legacy in Baltimore during the 20th century.

This boot-stomping fest from March 22-23 at Creative Alliance will feature acts such as Molsky’s Mountain Drifters, Corn Potato String Band, The Local Honeys, Jake Blount, and Tatiana Hargreaves, who are sure to bring the house down with fiddles, banjos, dulcimers, and plenty of dancing.
