Acoustic Alchemy
Mathew Abelson

Agora Ballroom
October 28

...Mathew Abelson is a gangly, young hammered dulcimer player who grew up in New Jersey, spent time in a Kibbutz in Israel, and taught himself to play hammered dulcimer while studying biology at Oberlin College. The cocky Abelson attacks the dulcimer with and an intensity rarely seen at you typical folk festival. Abelson won an encore from the audience for his high spirited rendition of several Irish tines, as well as moving performances of "Ashoken Farewell" (theme song for PBS' "Civil War" series) and the classic Shaker Hymn "It's a Gift to Be Simple."
