Grammy-nominated, and “one of America’s premier fiddling talents” (Mother Jones), Bruce's take on tradition has landed him in collaborations with some of the world's most highly respected players from roots to rock. He is a special guest on legend rocker Mark Knopfler’s new CD, “Tracker.” His 1865 Songs of Hope & Home with Anonymous 4, was on Billboard’s top 10 for weeks​, the third record with ​​Andy Irvine & Donal Lunny’s supergroup Mozaik​ is in the works​, ​and you can see Bruce on the ​BBC TV Transatlantic Sessions​ Videos​ with Aly Bain and Jerry Douglas​,​​ and on “David Holt’s State of Music” airing nationally.​ ​​His new trio​,​ Molsky’s Mountain Drifters includes Allison de Groot on banjo and Stash Wyslouch on guitar​ and their new self-titled CD has been released to great acclaim.​ ​Berklee College of Music has made Bruce their Visiting Scholar in the American Roots Music Program where Bruce is the go-to guy for the next generation of roots musicians.

Thompsonia combines Eric & Suzy Thompson’s deep devotion to southern roots music with daughter Allegra’s fresh perspective, creating feel-good music that richochets between the rowdy and the sentimental, with an abundance of groove and a bit of a quirky edge. They are celebrating the release of their second CD, “Nothing But Rain”, an old-time romp ranging from epic ballads to red-hot ragtime to topical songs of the Depression (all too apt for 2018!) to blues harmonies. Suzy and Allegra’s genetically-matched vocals (dubbed “The Everly Sisters sound” by Geoff Muldaur) are featured, along with stellar lead playing from Eric on mandolin and guitar and Suzy’s fiery fiddling. In addition to the Cajun, blues and old-time music for which Eric and Suzy have long been acclaimed, the trio also performs witty originals alongside obscurities in styles ranging from rockabilly to hokum to Americana.

This show is co-sponsored by the Berkeley Old Time Music Convention.
