Each and every night Ted Yoder Band crafts a progressive jam session that keeps audiences coast to coast asking presenters to "Bring them back!" Merging world class talent with a rock-n-roll attitude, the band delivers nostalgic music on rarely seen instruments.
Stunning covers of Toto, Tears for Fears, and the Beatles are mixed with relaxed banter and unscripted moments for a one of a kind show.

Ted Yoder is the Bela Fleck of the hammered dulcimer.
Leave your expectations behind. You might have heard the hammered dulcimer before, but you haven't experienced the hammered dulcimer until you've heard it played by Ted Yoder.
In many ways, Ted Yoder is the perfect musician for the 21st century; his passionate playing style and easy-going personality make him a natural online star. It’s impossible to imagine that one wooden stringed instrument can sound like an entire rock band or a whole symphony orchestra all in one.
