The Met Welcomes Bruce Molsky Solo

The Met welcomes Bruce Molsky for a very special show on Thursday 17 November at 7.30pm.

Bruce Molsky stands today as the premier old-time fiddler in the world, the defining virtuoso 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 supergroups, like the Grammy-nominated Fiddlers Four, and Mozaik, with Hungarian Nikola Parov, and Celtic giant Donal Lunny. He was on Nickel Creek\’s farewell tour, and performs in a trio with Scottish fiddler Aly Bain and Sweden\’s great Ale Moller.

Whether performing an ancient reel from Virginia, a Swedish waltz, or a loping cowboy ballad, Molsky presents himself as exactly who he is. The key to Molsky\’s enormous appeal as a live performer is a unique blend of virtuoso and humble, nice guy which makes him irresistible to audiences.

Tickets for the event are selling fast priced at £12, £10 concessions. For more information please call the ticket office on 0161 761 2216 or go on line www.themet.biz
