Bruce Molsky Seattle Concert
October 1, 2016 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm$18
With guitar, fiddle, or banjo in hand, Bruce Molsky explores traditional music from an astonishingly broad range of cultures synthesizing them and refracting them through his own evolving sensibilities to the point where the sources of his inspiration transform themselves into a sound that is uniquely his. While most identified with traditional American old-time music, Molskys influences range from the Appalachian soul of Tommy Jarrell to Delta blues; from the haunting modal strains of Irish music to the rhythmically nimble music of Eastern Europe.
Come enjoy Bruce’s unique and beautiful mastery of fiddle, guitar, banjo, and song in an evening of solo performance. We are thrilled to have him return for a concert in the Seattle Folklore Society Phinney series!
Tickets are $18 ($2 discount for SFS & PNA members, students and seniors), $9 for youth. Day of show tickets at the door, if still available, will be $2 more for adults (payable by cash or check). Doors will open at 7 pm for a 7:30 start.
Advance tickets are available from Brown Paper Tickets, and at other Seattle Folklore Society concerts prior to the show.
