Not Your Traditional Dulcimer Concert Coming to WCA
Wooster, OH – Wayne Center for the Arts is pleased to welcome dulcimer player Ted Yoder and
his band back to the Arts Center for a free concert on September 14 at 6pm. The concert will
take place on the front lawn, and attendees are encouraged to bring their chairs or blankets and
a DORA drink to enjoy the unique sounds and instrumentation of the Ted Yoder Band.
Ted Yoder is a renowned musician widely recognized as the “Bela Fleck of the hammered
dulcimer,” and gained global acclaim in 2016 for his instrumental rendition of “Everybody Wants
to Rule the World,” which garnered over 100 million views.
Ted’s unique performance style, called “Yoderizing,” reimagines popular covers and beloved
classics, creating the sound of an entire rock band or symphony orchestra with just his dulcimer.
Ted’s original compositions blend rock ‘n roll sensibilities and unmistakable innovation, creating
deeply moving and joyous music that captivates audiences.
“We had such a great time the last time Ted was here,” says Lynn Davis, Operations Manager at
Wayne Center for the Arts. “His sound is one-of-a-kind, and the songs are fun for the whole
family.” Ted made a stop at Wayne Center for the Arts during his tour in early 2020.
