Molsky’s Mountain Drifters is Bruce Molsky’s brand new trio with Allison de Groot and Stash Wyslouch. Bruce Molsky, “one of America’s premier fiddling talents” (Mother Jones) and Grammy-nominated artist on fiddle, banjo, guitar and song, is delighted to present his new group already on tour in the US. Bruce’s previous collaborations, with Anonymous 4, 1865 – Songs of Hope and Home from the American Civil War, was released to rave reviews and was on the top 10 Billboard charts for weeks. He is also a special guest on legendary guitarist Mark Knopfler’s latest CD, Tracker and is working on his 3rd album with Andy Irvine & Donal Lunny’s supergroup Mozaik. 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.

Join Bruce Molsky, Allison de Groot and Stash Wyslouch for a hands-on old time music workshop. All instruments are welcome. We’ll learn a couple of tunes and work on old time style and ensemble playing, and just enjoy the experience of playing together.

Experience level: for anyone who can learn short phrases of melody or simple chords by ear. Not recommended for brand new beginners. Email Emily Crosby to reserve your spot. Co-presented with the Summit School of Traditional Music and Culture.
