Charm City Junction
Charm City Junction
From dance-inducing Old Time rhythms and foot-stomping Irish melodies to hard-driving Bluegrass, Baltimore-based acoustic roots quartet Charm City Junction creates a fresh soundscape that keeps listeners on the edge of their seats wondering where they'll go next. Featuring fiddle,
clawhammer banjo, button accordion and upright bass, this quartet isn’t afraid to take roots music
to new places — but always with an eye on tradition.
Formed in 2014, Charm City Junction has taken the acoustic music scene by storm performing
around the country gaining high praise along the way for their high-energy, captivating and dynamic
performances. Patrick McAvinue, 2017 IBMA Fiddle Player of the Year, takes charge with his
virtuosic, powerful and musical approach to the fiddle. Clawhammer banjo wizard Brad Kolodner
adds his playful, driving, melodic and groovy Old-Time touch. Sean McComiskey, soars through
the tunes and fills the gaps with his soulful button accordion playing. The versatile bassist Alex
Lacquement drives the train, locking everything together with his commanding and tasteful
choices. Drawing from separate musical backgrounds, the four members have found a common
ground on which to develop their unique approach. Since releasing their highly anticipated debut
album Charm City Junction on Patuxent Music in the fall of 2015, they have performed prestigious
festivals including Grey Fox, Old Songs, Bristol Rhythm & Roots, Delaware Valley Bluegrass
Festival and an appearance at the Kennedy Center. They released their second full-length album,
Duckpin, in the summer of 2018. The record debuted at #6 on the Billboard Bluegrass charts.
