Brittany Haas, fiddle
Bruce Molsky, fiddle
Grammy-nominated fiddler Bruce Molsky, “widely regarded as one of the best living practitioners of Appalachian old-time fiddling” (WBUR), and fiddler’s fiddler Brittany Haas (of Crooked Still) come together for a joyful evening of old-time music. The event will crackle with heart-thumpingly gorgeous songs that bridge Molsky’s and Haas’ respective generations with the community – past, present, and future – who carries this musical tradition forward over the centuries.
Both Molsky and Haas are revered for their old-time fiddling, a musical tradition which comes from the southern Appalachian mountains. The concert will find the two friends trading old-time works that have stood the test of time, laughing over memories, and delighting in the joy of how this rich musical heritage continues to grow. Historically played for dances, these social songs gather people together using a structure in which musicians perform the melody together.
The session is part of “Bruce Molsky: We Went to Different Schools Together,” a series of virtual home concerts with stories, where Molsky is joined by a different artist and friend who holds a special place in his musical life.
The livestream will take place at 8pm Eastern / 5pm Pacific.
