Ken and Brad Kolodner with banjo, fiddle and hammer dulcimer

Two hundred years ago, Washington, DC had been burned, and the British turned their wrath onto the city that had been building all those commerce raiders, Baltimore, Maryland. When the Royal Navy was rebuffed at the entrance to the Baltimore Harbor, Francis Scott Key was so moved by the still waving American flag above Fort McHenry that he wrote the song that would eventually become our national anthem.  Ken and Brad Kolodner return to the Bowie Branch Library to play that song, and others that were popular during the early 19th Century, on traditional folk instruments, such as the fiddle, hammer dulcimer and banjo.  Please be sure to join us as we pay homage to Francis Scott Key and celebrate the 200th Anniversary of the Star Spangled Banner.
