Bruce Molsky's Mountain Drifters

4545 N Lincoln Ave · The Myron R. Szold Music & Dance Hall · 773.728.6000


Introducing Bruce Molsky's brand new trio with Allison de Groot and Stash Wyslouch. Tradition steeped in possibility.

Molsky's Mountain Drifters packs a punch with three of the most captivating performers in the most recent generation of Old-Time and American Roots music. The band features Bruce Molsky, (Grammy nominated, revered Old-Time music ambassador and Berklee College of Music Visiting Scholar) along with guitar genre bender Stash Wyslouch (of the Deadly Gentlemen) on guitar and vocals and master of the clawhammer banjo, Allison de Groot (of The Goodbye Girls). These striking musicians have come together for a new sound within the traditional music genre through their audacious approach. “I was looking for a new voice,” says Molsky, “a new avenue of expression using old time mountain music as the jumping-off point, but not being constrained by hard core traditionalism. Allison and Stash are showing me the way, just where the music is headed, in directions I never would have imagined when I started my own journey into the mountains a long time ago.”

“This record captures all the intricate, meditative, overwhelming joy that I love so much in old time music." - Joey Ryan of The Milk Carton Kids

"Bruce has always been a major player and influence on all around him. I am happy to say this recording will give him that same stamp of approval from all who hear it.”- Jerry Douglas
