Molsky's Mountain Drifters
Bruce Molsky, hailed as “one of America’s premier fiddling talents” (Mother Jones) and a Grammy-nominated artist on fiddle, banjo, guitar and song. He’s collaborated with artists from a cappella ensemble Anonymous 4 on 1865 – Songs of Hope and Home from the American Civil War, as well as being a special guest on legendary guitarist Mark Knopfler’s latest CD, Tracker. You can also hear Bruce on BBC TV Transatlantic Sessions singing with Joan Osborne, Julie Fowlis and fiddling with Scottish legend Aly Bain and America’s great dobroist Jerry Douglas. Bruce is also Berklee College of Music’s Visiting Scholar in the American Roots Program.
His Mountain Drifters includes Allison de Groot who combines wide-ranging virtuosity and passion for old-time music. With her own bands The Goodbye Girls and Oh My Darling, she has performed around the world and like Bruce, she loves collaborating and bringing new ideas to old music, and brings a fresh approach to the trio. Boston-based Stash Wyslouch is one of bluegrass’s great young genre-bending pioneers. He got his start as a guitarist in metal bands before immersing himself in roots music as a member of The Deadly Gentlemen.
