Hammered dulcimer national champion performs Jan. 27

Bluffton Town Hall Concert Series

Ted Yoder, virtuoso, hammered dulcimer musician, will perform on the next Bluffton Town Hall Concert Series.

His performance is 7:30 p.m., Saturday, Jan. 27, in the third floor of the Bluffton town hall, 154 N. Main St.

Here's a description of Yoder's talents:
Yoder has revolutionized the hammered dulcimer through his pop symphonic approach on the instrument as a solo performer.

He’s the national champion whose fanbase has nicknamed his approach to playing popular songs “Yoderizing.”
In less than a decade, Yoder has gone from tinkering on the hammered dulcimer to releasing five studio albums, authoring a groundbreaking instructional book, teaching Skype lessons to students around the nation, and becoming an in-demand performer at community theaters, churches, and festivals. 

In 2010, three years after dedicating all his time to the instrument, he won the title of National Hammer Dulcimer Champion at the Walnut Valley Festival.

He’s been profiled in the Kearney Hub, Huffington Post, and on NPR’s esteemed All Things Considered show, among many other features, profiles, and reviews in regional and national tastemaking outlets.

Yoder is currently preparing his fifth album.
