The "Appalachia in the Bluegrass" concert series are filled with artists committed to keeping the folk music genre alive and thriving.

Born into a musical family in Massachusetts, Don Pedi follows in his grandfathers's footsetps of being a gifted musician and singer with a love for the traditional folk sound.  He got involved with folk music during the early 1960s, and is now recognized as one of the best lap dulcimer players in the country.  His musical influences include artists such as Doc Watson, Almeda Riddle and Frank Profitt.  Pedi is distinguished from other artists by his unique style of fiddle tunes.  Today, aside from traveling to perform, he is a teacher, a radio host and a visual artist.
