Molsky's Mountain Drifters
A laser-tight trio with an ear for lovely, lilting traditional melodies, Molsky's Mountain Drifters brings tradition steeped in possibility.  The grace and wisdom of longtime fiddle player and Grammy nominated multi-instrumentalist Bruce Molsky, Berklee College of Music's Visiting Scholar in the American Roots Program, described as an absolute master (No Depression), melds with the electricity of guitarist Stash Wyslouch and banjoist Allison de Groot to bring new ideas to traditional music.

Allison de Groot is the kind of artist whose virtuosity is built on her strength as a player, performer, and composer, and is known for her "great clawhammer banjo technique, exquisite tone, timing, and taste.  She has deep roots in the old-time tradition and yet shes fearless when it comes to breaking new ground."(Tony Trischka)

Stash Wyslouch is one of bluegrass's great young genre-bending pioneers, "a brilliant and free-thinking mind." (Chris Eldridge, Punch Brothers)  Coming over from the punk-metal world, Stash brings great sensitivity and real emotion to the trio, plus superb guitar and vocal chops.

These striking musicians have come together for a new sound within the traditional music genre through their audacious approach. "I was looking for a new voice," says Molsky, "a new avenue of expression using old-time mountain music as the jumping-off point, but not being constrained by hardcore traditionalism. Allison and Stash are showing me the way, just where the music is headed, in directions I never would have imagined when I started my own journey into the mountains a long time ago."
