Molsky’s Mountain Drifters
October 18, 2019 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm
Molsky’s Mountain Drifters packs a punch with three of the most captivating performers in the most recent generation of Old-Time and American Roots music.
The band features Bruce Molsky, (Grammy nominated, revered Old-Time music ambassador and Berklee College of Music Visiting Scholar) along with guitar genre bender Stash Wyslouch (of the Deadly Gentlemen) on guitar and vocals and master of the clawhammer banjo, Allison de Groot (of The Goodbye Girls).
These striking musicians have come together for a new sound within the traditional music genre through their audacious approach. “I was looking for a new voice,” says Molsky, “a new avenue of expression using old time mountain music as the jumping-off point, but not being constrained by hard core traditionalism. Allison and Stash are showing me the way, just where the music is headed, in directions I never would have imagined when I started my own journey into the mountains a long time ago.”
We’re delighted to bring our friend Bruce, a fellow Dutchess County resident, here to The Stissing Center. Come and be captivated by Molsky’s Mountain Drifters at a special performance at The Stissing Center on Friday, October 18. Doors open at 7:00 pm and, since there is no bad seat in the house, general admission tickets are $20 each. The acoustics for this show are going to know your socks off!
“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” – WBUR (Boston NPR)
