BCHS to Host Hammered Dulcimer Musician, Ted Yoder

The Bradford County Historical Society will host a program titled, “A Hammered Dulcimer Concert with Ted Yoder,” scheduled for Friday, July 20, 2018 at 6 p.m. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. This event is sponsored by Chief Oil & Gas and the United Way of Bradford County. There is no admission charge but donations are appreciated. To reserve a seat, participants are required to register by calling 570-265-2240 or by email at NOTE: Due to the popularity of this event, there are already only 30 seats that remain available by reservation only. Anyone who attends without a reservation will not be able to get in.

Critically acclaimed musician Ted Yoder profoundly reimagined his instrument of choice, inventing a fresh musical vocabulary along the way. He is a National Hammered Dulcimer champion and has released five beloved and critically acclaimed solo albums, as well as become a master educator of the instrument. In 2016, Ted became something of a household name when a Facebook Live video of him playing Tears For Fears’ “Everybody Wants To Rule The World” went viral and has been viewed over 102 million times since then. Ted brings his music to Bradford County for an evening concert at BCHS.

This program is a part of the 2018 Friday Night at the Museum programming series that is held the third Friday of each month from May through October. Each event is held in the Great Room at the Bradford County Historical Society, located at 109 Pine Street, Towanda, PA. Refreshments are provided at each program and the museum is open a half-hour prior to the event.

Other programs scheduled for this season are: August 17 – The French Legacy in Bradford County; September 21 – Lumbering Heritage in Northeastern Pennsylvania, Sponsored by Citizens & Northern Bank; and October 19 – The Influenza Pandemic of 1918 and its Effect on Bradford County.

The Bradford County Historical Society is a recipient agency of the Bradford County United Way and the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission. For more information about the society and its programming schedule, museum or research center, visit or check out the society on Facebook or Twitter.
