Featuring Charm City Junction and Footworks Percussive Dance Ensemble

Acoustic roots band Charm City Junction joins forces with the legendary Footworks Percussive Dance Ensemble to bring you "Steppin’ at the Junction," an evening of the very best in Old-Time, Irish, Bluegrass-inspired music and dance.

“Steppin’ at the Junction” is a new production, the result of Charm City Junction and Footworks’ recognition of their common approach to presenting traditional music and dance. Both ensembles have extensive histories and experience performing traditional Old Time, Irish, and Bluegrass music; and both groups expand those traditions through innovative, original, and playful creations.

“Steppin’ at the Junction” includes tunes with acoustic instrumentation, songs, and percussive dance choreography, for a rousing, high-energy celebration of the roots and branches of American music and dance.

Since 1979, Footworks Percussive Dance Ensemble has delighted audiences of all ages and cultures across North America and Europe. Pioneers in bringing traditional Americana music and percussive dance to the concert stage, Footworks has performed at The Kennedy Center, Lincoln Center, the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall, the Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center, Wolftrap Farm Park for the Performing Arts, and the Vail International Dance Festival.

Baltimore-based roots group Charm City Junction puts a new spin on old-time music, carrying the torch for fast-picking bluegrass and toe-tapping Celtic. This quartet takes roots music to unchartered terrain, creating a sound that keeps listeners on the edge of their seats. The band is comprised of four of the most talented and promising young acoustic roots musicians in the country: Patrick McAvinue on fiddle, Brad Kolodner on clawhammer banjo, Sean McComiskey on button accordion and Alex Lacquement on upright bass.
