Blazing Banjos: Tony Trischka & Bruce Molsky/Abigail Washburn


The first half of this SMF original double-bill features the formidable duo of Tony Trischka and Bruce Molsky. In a career that has now encompassed four decades, acclaimed banjo innovator Tony Trischka has created an endless array of new possibilities for the five-string banjo. While he has mastered nearly every element of the instrument’s stylistic history—from old-time modal clawhammer to the most intricate melodic modern styles—it was folk music initially, and bluegrass music in particular, that first drew him to the banjo. Bruce Molsky stands today as the world’s premier old-time fiddler and one of the defining virtuosos of Appalachia’s timeless folk music traditions.
In addition to a prolific solo career, performing on fiddle, guitar, and banjo, Molsky frequently joins genre-busting super-groups and artists such as the Fiddlers Four, Mozaik, Nikola Parov, and Donal Lunny. The second half of this program showcases Abigail Washburn’s band.
