Critically acclaimed musician Ted Yoder is widely considered “the Béla Fleck of the hammered dulcimer.” Though he’s a visionary artist in his own right, the comparison holds water in that he profoundly reimagined his instrument of choice, inventing a fresh musical vocabulary along the way—“Yoderizing”—and his virtuosity is boundless. Yoder powerfully personalizes classics across genres and eras—including Irish traditionals, worship music favorites, and pop and rock songs from the Eagles and The Beatles. He also includes in his set his own gorgeously impressionistic compositions that have become modern standards for his devoted fanbase. When he plays live, everyone becomes a fan.
A National Hammered Dulcimer champion, Yoder has released five solo albums and been featured in the Kearney Hub, Huffington Post, and on NPR’s All Things Considered. He became something of a household name when a Facebook Live video of him from his Live From The Orchard series playing Tears For Fears’ “Everybody Wants To Rule The World” went viral. The video rocketed up to 53 million views in four days.
