Two-time Grammy nomminee Bruce Molsky has been called “The Rembrandt of Appalachian fiddle” by fellow musician Derol Anger. While most identified with traditional American old-time music, Molsky’s 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.
A former engineer turned professional musician, he conveys a meticulous craftsmanship in his approach to the music; his singing of “Peg and Awl” in harmony with his fiddle is as technically impressive as it is beautiful.
