BRUCE MOLSKY
Bruce Molsky is "one of America's premier fiddling talents" (Mother Jones) and twice Grammy-nominated artist on fiddle, banjo, guitar and song. He 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.

"Bruce Molsky is one of those great players who 'gets it': has all the links to the past but is happy not to be chained to it."-Mark Knopfler
"It's no exaggeration to say that Bruce Molsky is one of the greatest American fiddlers of all time. His playing is mesmerizing and transporting...."-WBUR (Boston NPR)

LAURA RISK
Laura Risk's fiddling has been described by filmmaker Ken Burns as "a revelation and achingly beautiful" and Living Tradition magazine (UK) hails her

"powerful, percussive style, bursting with energy and passion."
Originally from California, now living in Montreal, Laura performs and teaches Quebecois and Scottish fiddling internationally and has over a dozen albums to her credit. Her distinctive sound and compelling interpretations of traditional tunes are intensely personal yet grounded in meticulous archival and ethnographic research. Laura has toured with the bands Cordelia's Dad, Triptych, Ensemble Galilee, and dancer Sandy Silva. Laura holds a PhD in Musicology from McGill University for which she received the 2017 Governor General's Gold Medal in Human Sciences.

"A rare level of grace, vivacity, and emotional depth."-The Boston Herald.

"A virtuoso fiddler. Her fluency in styles from Cape Breton to Appalachia is remarkable."-The Boston Globe

"Brilliant...Risk's fiddle dances through the music like a live thing, and you can't help but wonder if her nimble fingers have ever missed a note. Her playing is emotional, sincerte, gorgeous."-Rambles
