Neo-traditional music refers to any contemporary music that follows in the footsteps of cultural tradition. It is typically acoustic, with simple melodies and spare instrumentation. Bergmann and Thomas play American old-time, Celtic and South American music.  Pieces to look forward to include English folk tunes “Packington’s Pound” and Argeers, “Fairy Queen”, an Irish tune by Turlough O’Carolan, “Al Fin Te Vi” and “La Partida,” Cuban and Venezuelan tunes respectively, and “Old Yellow Dog”, a Civil War fiddle tune. 

Tina Bergmann is a virtuoso hammered dulcimer player known for her driving energy, syncopated rhythms, and fine musicality. Described by Pete Seeger as “the best hammered dulcimer player I’ve heard in my life,” she’s also been promoted as the “Diva of the Dulcimer” by Apollo’s Fire, Cleveland’s Baroque Orchestra.

Bryan Thomas is a dynamic and conversational double bassist, sought for his ability to embrace tradition but defy convention. Together these two musicians create a surprising and wonderful musical experience that has enthralled audiences throughout the United States. 

This concert is sponsored by the Hudson Library & Historical Society Board of Trustees. For more information, email AskUs@hudson.lib.oh.us or visit hudsonlibrary.org.
