    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.

    Oh ok, he’s back, in-reincarnated again now.  Good ol Lester.  I do believe he was a national treasure.

    I’ve seen many of his videos on you tube. He’s adorable and a wonderful player:o)

    I just noticed how big his hands are and how long his fingers are.  I guess in some ways that could be a big help, but I never saw such large hands.
