Henry Koretzky

Ken Gehret has been performing as a musician for more than thirty years primarily, as a guitarist/violinist. He performs, teaches, composes and arranges, for over 17 instruments including: voice, woodwind, reed, string and keyboards. His main instruments are banjo and fiddle. His musical experiences stem from country music background, performing with well known stars including Roy Clark and Mell Tellis. Live performances with Jim and Jesse and the Virginia Boys were televised from the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville Tennesee.  Mr Gehret's musical abilities are wide and varied. His talents, reflect years of true dedication.  He is truly, a natural born musician.  When not  performing, Ken has a full teaching schedule. He is the designer/inventor of the 10 string guitar. Ken's philosophy is: "Some people play golf. Some play bridge. Others, jump from cliffs using bungee cords. I like to play music.  Music, is what I do and love.  I love getting together with my musical friends to create interesting and  wonderful sounds. I believe music is the most honest and immediate form of  communication available to human beings." 

Henry Koretsky is amazing on the Hammered Dulcimer, which he's taught and played at many festivals; a terrific pair!
