Bruce Molsky at the Phinney Neighborhood Center
Don't miss this opportunity to hear legendary Bruce Molsky along with Alex and Tatiana Hargreaves, siblings carrying on the next generation of old-time music.
With guitar, fiddle, or banjo in hand, Bruce Molsky explores traditional music from an astonishingly broad range of cultures synthesizing them and refracting them through his own evolving sensibilities to the point where the sources of his inspiration transform themselves into a sound that is uniquely his. While most identified with traditional American old-time music, Molskys 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.
Alex Hargreaves was the youngest ever to win the Grand Champion division at the National Oldtime Fiddlers' Contest in Weiser, Idaho in 2007. In 2005, 2006 and 2007, hewon the Championship Division of the Oregon Oldtime Fiddlers Contest. In 2006, Alex won the Junior Division (ages 17 and under) at the National Oldtime Fiddlers Contest in Weiser. In addition to playing a variety of styles on fiddle, Alex also plays mandolin and guitar.
At 13 years of age, Tatiana has already steeped herself in the archives of Appalachian music and song, playing both fiddle and banjo. She has appeared on stage with folk and bluegrass musicians including Bruce Molsky, Darol Anger, Mark OConnor, Uncle Earl, Sara Watkins, Sean Watkins, Brittany Haas, Tristan Clarridge, Tashina Clarridge, Crooked Still, Luke Bulla, Laurie Lewis & Tom Rozum. In
2008 Tatiana was the youngest winner of the Championship Division of the Oregon Oldtime Fiddlers Contest.
