Participants will have the opportunity to play fiddle, guitar, or banjo with one of America’s most respected old-time fiddlers, Bruce Molsky, as well as clawhammer banjo player Allison de Groot and guitarist Stash Wyslouch. Participants will be divided into small groups to learn some tunes, and then join back together to play as a group.
About the Artists: Bruce Molsky, “one of America’s premier fiddling talents” (Mother Jones) and Grammy-nominated artist on fiddle, banjo, guitar and song is delighted to present his new group already on tour in the US. Clawhammer banjo player Allison de Groot combines wide ranging virtuosity and passion for old-time music. Boston-based Stash Wyslouch is one of bluegrass’ great young genre-bending pioneers. This is an old-time band exploring fresh approaches.
Equipment Needed: Violin/Fiddle, banjo, and/or guitar. A recorder is highly recommended.
Suggested experience level: If you're comfortable with the instrument and have at least a small repertoire of tunes then you'll be fine.
