CD Release and Tribute Concert
Claude Martin “Old  Time Fiddle”
Saturday, October 7th, 2017 7:30-9:30 P.M., doors at 7 P.M.

Matt Kinman, Robbie Caruthers, Ralph Gordon, Sam and Joe Herrmann of Critton Hollow Stringband and The Martin Family Band!

Join family and friends for a show dedicated to the memory and celebration of well-known Maryland traditional fiddle player, Claude Martin. One of the finest fiddle players of his generation, "Fiddlin' Claude" passed away in October 2016 while working on his first solo fiddle album.

Claude Martin had a reputation for unerring rhythm and a true old-time style, with his own improvisation and songwriting as impressive as his knowledge of tradition. Gathering to honour Claude: friends, family and colleagues will present an evening of music and release a collection of his recordings. The concert will be hosted by Walt Michael of Common Ground on the Hill, and is sponsored by the area’s major folk music institutions: Folklore Society of Greater Washington and the Institute of Musical Traditions. Special thanks to Patuxent Records and Asparagus Media for work on the recordings.

Truly, a one-of-a-kind evening not to be missed, Claude leaves behind a loving family and a reputation for unerring rhythm and a true old-time style. Proceeds to benefit Claude's daughter, and a suggested donation of $15 may be given at the door.
