Charm City Junction to kick off concert season

 Contributed Charm City Junction

Music on the Delaware will open its 2019-20 concert season Saturday, Sept. 14, with Charm City Junction, a bluegrass/old-time acoustic quartet from Baltimore.

The Walton Theatre concert will take place at 7:30 p.m. and will be preceded by an open jam session at 6:30 p.m. in the parlor.

In its second appearance at the Walton Theatre, Charm City Junction is composed of four young musicians. They are Patrick McAvinue on fiddle, Brad Kolodner on clawhammer banjo, Alex Lacquement on upright bass and Sean McComiskey on button accordion. According to a media release, the group was formed in 2014 and has taken the acoustic music scene by storm with its “captivating and dynamic performances.” Drawing from separate musical backgrounds, the four members have found a common ground on which to develop their unique approach. Since releasing its self-titled debut album in the fall of 2015, the group has performed at many festivals including Grey Fox, Old Songs, Bristol Rhythm & Roots, and the Kennedy Center. The group released its second full-length album, “Duckpin,” in the summer of 2018.

Reviews of the band, according to a media release include: “The young acoustic quartet combines traditional instruments…into a pretty, pastoral medley of Celtic, folk, and bluegrass music….At times, the songs are pure backwoods Americana, straight-up Appalachian mountain music, or the kind of boot-scootin’ stomp heard at a country dance. At others, they’re old-timey and Irish….” from Baltimore Magazine; and “Carrying on the torch of interesting, rootsy music,” from SiriusXM,
