BRUCE MOLSKY & TONY TRISCHKA
December 4 @ 8:00 pm
Saturday, December 4 • Showtime 8:00 pm • Doors open 7:30 pm
Tickets: $20 – General Admission ($25 at the door.)
There’s some virtuosic and joy provoking common ground in the fusion of Tony Trischka’s bluegrass banjo world view and Bruce Molsky’s new but true to tradition old time southern mountain fiddling and singing. Their new and old songs and tunes showcase the best of each, and hearing them together is always a wonderful visit between old friends.
Bruce is a revered ambassador for Appalachian and old-time music. His authentic feel for the repertoire transports audiences to another time and place. His collaborations range from classic old-time fiddling to Andy Irvine’s world fusion ensemble Mozaik. He’s toured from Appalachia to Australia and garnered two Grammy nominations. Bruce Molsky performed at The Stissing Center in our first “Construction Concert Series,” in the Fall of 2019, and in The Chair Series™ in 2020. We are delighted to welcome our Dutchess County neighbor back to Pine Plains.
Tony is a founding father of progressive bluegrass. Over his long career, he has up-ended all previous notions of what a banjo is for. He has inspired and supported musicians from monster banjo innovator Béla Fleck to Steve Martin, the banjo’s unofficial celebrity ambassador. Welcome, Tony!
Bar: Wine, beer, and soft drinks available in designated areas at this event.
