2022 Susquehanna Folk Festival Neidig, Koretzky, Gehret & Campbell with guests Alexander Mitchell and Todd Clewell

About This Event:

There’s no telling what will happen when this “who’s who” of powerhouse Central PA musicians takes the stage! Between them they can play anything. They’ve been the Susquehanna Folk Festival’s official “house band” since its inception in 2018, and an SFMS audience favorite well before that.

Kevin Neidig

Kevin is one of the finest musicians on the Central PA scene, combining virtuosity in singing, instrumental playing and songwriting. In addition to being a powerful solo performer, his creative arrangements and agile picking and playing on a host of stringed instruments make him a valued collaborator.

Henry Koretzky

Henry has been a fixture on the local roots music scene since the early 80s, playing bluegrass, contra dance music, swing, contemporary folk/Americana, and a bit of Celtic. He's played with a long list of bands that will be familiar to local contra dancers and festival-goers, including his latest project, the Harrisburg Mandolin Ensemble.

Ken Gehret

Ken has been performing as a musician for more than thirty years, primarily as a guitarist and violinist. Ken performs, teaches, composes and arranges for over 17 instruments including voice, woodwind, reed, string and keyboards. His local band projects range from Irish traditional to bluegrass to jazz. He has performed with country music stars including Roy Clark and Mel Tillis, and has performed at the Grand Ole Opry.

Bruce Campbell

Bruce has been a favored sideman in our area for dozens of bands and musicians over the last 40 years. In the 90s, string bass wooed his heart away from keyboards and guitar, and he specializes now in all varieties of jazz, as well as numerous singer/songwriter acts. An active local performer, he can also be heard on a score of recordings, both as a regular band member and as a studio sideman.

Todd Clewell

Todd is another long-long-time fixture on the Central PA roots music scene. He can be found playing dances and other events on fiddle and guitar, often with fiddler Barb Schmid and the gentlemen above.

Alexander Mitchell

Alex hails from the Frederick, MD area. A multi-instrumentalist and longtime fiddler, his repertoire includes such diverse styles as Appalachian, bluegrass, Klezmer, traditional roots dance music, ballroom, hot swing, and jazz. He is a graduate of the Berklee School of Music.
