This one man band will simply knock your socks off: an astounding
phenomenon of talent! One of the most influential fiddlers of his
generation, Bruce Molsky is also a remarkable
guitarist, banjoist and singer. His high-spirited music melds mountain
sounds of Appalachia, the power of blues and the rhythmic intricacies
of traditional African music, haunting modal strains of Irish music and
the rhythmically nimble music of Eastern Europe.
"Soon Be Time" is Bruce's newest solo recording
(Compass Records, May 2006) and features his unique approach to
traditional music. Bruce has been featured on Garrison Keillor's
acclaimed A Prairie Home Companion radio show, has performed at The
Lincoln Center in New York and The Smithsonian Folklife Festival in
Washington, DC. Bruce is highly sought-after as a fiddle and
banjo teacher, and teaches his own intensive instrument workshop all
over the U.S.
