Fiddle, banjo, or guitar in hand, Bruce Molsky is an outstanding exponent of old time traditional music. Molsky’s influences range from the Appalachian soul of the late great fiddler, Tommy Jarrell, to Delta blues and from the haunting modes of Irish music to the rhythmically nimble music of Eastern Europe. Molsky blends these sounds and styles and puts his own spin on them, producing instrumental tunes that are both old and new, traditional and fresh, and he makes it seem effortless.  Hailing from Winnipeg, Allison de Groot is a member of Molsky's Mountain drifters and other bands.  Her technical skills and creative approach push the boundaries of banjo playing but are firmly rooted in the old time tradition.
