Fiddler, banjo player, guitarist, and singer, Bruce has been called "The Rembrandt of Appalachian fiddle.", but does not restrict himself to genre. We are privileged and excited to host the return concert of this master musician.
Bruce Molsky explores traditional music from an astonishingly broad range of cultures synthesizing them and refracting them through his own evolving sensibilities into a sound that is uniquely his. While most identified with traditional American old-time music, Molsky's influences range from the Appalachian soul of Tommy Jarrell to Delta blues; from the haunting modal strains of Irish music to the rhythmically nimble music of Eastern Europe.
Two-time Grammy nominee Bruce Molsky comes at southern roots and blues on fiddle, banjo, and guitar with great depth of spirit, passion, and respect for the past. His wide-angled approach to traditional folk music has been infused by rhythms and melodies from around the world and he in turn is influencing a new generation of players.
