Music

The internationally-lauded duo throws down original folk songs, deep interpretations of old songs, and the kinetic thrill of percussive dance on Saturday, June 27 from 1:00 to 2:00. Register for the virtual event online.

“Ladin sings and plays infectious claw-hammer banjo, while Terry is a master percussionist. It was Appalachian string band music pared to the absolute minimum of accompaniment, but packed with an orchestra’s worth of rhythm.”
— Music City Roots, Nashville

This free event received partial funding support from the Friends of the Menlo Park Library.
