BRUCE MOLSKY'S MOUNTAIN DRIFTERS
Bruce Molsky, “one of America’s premier fiddling talents” (Mother Jones) and a Grammy-nominated artist on fiddle, banjo, guitar and song is delighted to bring his new group, already on tour in the U.S., to Blackstone River Theatre. Bruce’s previous collaborations, with Anonymous 4, 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 and is working on his 3rd album with Andy Irvine & Donal Lunny’s supergroup Mozaik. Molsky is also Berklee College of Music’s Visiting Scholar in the American Roots Program. Allison de Groot combines virtuosity with a passion for old-time music. With her own bands The Goodbye Girls and Oh My Darling, she has played Trafalgar Square in London, Newport Folk Festival, Stockholm Folk Festival and more. Like Bruce, Allison loves collaborating and bringing new ideas to old music, and brings a fresh approach to the trio. Boston-based Stash Wyslouch is one of bluegrass’ great young genre-bending pioneers. He got his start as a guitarist in metal bands before immersing himself in roots music as a member of The Deadly Gentlemen. Stash is a veteran festival performer, having played at Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival, Rockygrass, Merlefest, Savannah Music Festival and others. Says WBUR (Boston NPR), "It is no exaggeration to say that Bruce Molsky is one of the greatest American fiddlers of all time. His playing is mesmerizing and transporting, and best experienced live..."
