August 16th – 18th, 2024

Leonard Podolak has been touring full force for the last 15 years with the Juno/Grammy Award winning, The Duhks. He is a critically acclaimed 5-String Claw-hammer banjo player, and is known for putting together wonderful combinations of musicians, often creating a full, but new sound in what ever project he touches. Recently Leonard was invited to produce the latest CD for the PEI trio, Ten Strings and A Goat Skin. He is Thrilled to return to Summerfolk, after recent appearances with Dry Bones, and The Duhks.

Matt Gordon is an Old Time Appalachian Fiddler, Clogger, Hambone(ist), and Harmonica player. He toured in the 80s and 90s with the Fiddle Puppet Dancers, taking part in the London debut of Riverdance, and participating in festivals around North America and Europe.

Together, Matt and Leonard put on an exciting show of Traditional Appalachian Fiddle and Banjo Music. They also clog, and do Hambone. And They sing too. Sometimes a few at the same time.
