The Shedd Institute is pleased to welcome and old friend back to the Jaqua Concert Hall. One of Americas premier fiddling talents and a twice-Grammy-nominated artist on fiddle, banjo, guitar and song, Bruce Molsky has dug into the deepest reaches of mountain music, while growing his own unique voice. Bruce holds a stage as few other musicians can. His skill at performing a deep and varied repertoire and a reverence for the past, combined with a relaxed, conversational wit, draws listeners in as if they were sitting on the front porch of Carnegie Hall.
