He’s a good fiddler but really stands out as an ambassador and an educator of old-time fiddling. I took a group of fiddlers to him for a workshop when he was passing through Boone, and he was incredible.
Oh wait…it was Lester McCumbers before….how did it change to Bruce Molsky???? Am I going crazy? Well, I think Lester was one of the true great fiddlers who really inspired the old time community. I like Bruce too, but I don’t think today’s professional musicians are exactly in the same league of old time fiddlers from the past, who more than likely preserved the art.
