Ted Yoder

Thursday October 12, 2017 @ 8:00 PM

We are thrilled to welcome National Hammer Dulcimer Champion and viral sensation TED YODER to the Bridge Street stage on Thursday, October 12th at 8 pm!

Critically acclaimed musician Ted Yoder 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. His recorded body of work has garnered him plaudits from the jam band community, the folk scene, worship music fans, and music lovers of all ages. When he plays live, everyone becomes a fan.

Ted is a National Hammered Dulcimer champion. He’s released five beloved and critically acclaimed solo albums, and become a master educator of the instrument. Ted has been profiled in the Kearney Hub, Huffington Post, and on NPR’s All Things Considered show, among many other features, profiles, and reviews in regional and national tastemaking outlets. On Wednesday, August 24th, 2016, Ted became something of a household name when a Facebook Live video of him from his Live From The Orchard series playing Tears For Fears’ “Everybody Wants To Rule The World” went viral. The video rocketed up to 53 million views in four days.

When the master holds court, the thrill of what feels like a one-man orchestra takes hold. In performance, Ted whisks his audience away on a spiritually uplifting journey across genres. He powerfully personalizes classics across genres and eras as only he can—including Irish traditionals, worship music favorites, pop and rock songs from Eagles and The Beatles—with his symphonic solo musician touch. He also includes in his set his own gorgeously impressionistic compositions that have become modern standards for his devoted fanbase.

“I want the audience to feel like they’re in my living room and I’m playing them my music,” Ted says. “I want to share in something unforgettable and positive. Seeing their laughs, smiles, and nods is the highpoint for me.”

Tickets to this special show are only $15 for General Admission and $25 for VIP Reserved.
