Musical Monday: Molsky's Mountain Drifters Perform "The Little Carpenter"
Old-time music legend, Bruce Molsky, and his powerhouse band rolled through Glens Falls on March 28, 2019—roughly one year before COVID did. The capacity crowd that night was treated to a spectacular performance from the Grammy nominee and his bandmates. Today for Musical Monday, the Folklife Center reaches into its archives and shares a never-before-seen video from that show.
More about the band and our Live! Folklife Concerts:
Bruce Molsky, a two-time Grammy nominee and "one of the greatest American fiddlers of all time" WBUR (Boston NPR), brings his new group–Molsky's Mountain Drifters–to Crandall Public Library. Already a legendary figure in America's old-time mountain music scene, Molsky joins forces with banjo virtuoso, Allison de Groot (of the Goodbye Girls and Oh My Darling), and genre-bending bluegrass guitarist, Stash Wyslouch (The Stash Band), to point to the future of traditional, rural music.
