Trio of Folk Masters come to The Met

Aly Bain, Ale Möller and Bruce Molsky, three of the world’s leading folk musicians, come together at The Met on Wednesday 30 October at 8pm.


Aly Bain is Scotland’s supreme traditional style fiddler and one of the most famous in the world. In November 1994 he was awarded an M.B.E. for services to folk music, and has received several honorary Doctor of Music (DMus) degrees, including ones from the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama, and from the University of St Andrews.


Ale Möller found his roots in Swedish folk music by way of first falling in love with the sounds of Greece. En route he became a master of the bouzouki and a multi-instrumentalist with a lot of different flutes in his belt.


Bruce Molsky from the USA is one of the most influential old-time fiddlers around. He is also a remarkable guitarist, banjoist and singer. His high-spirited music melds the archaic mountain sounds of Appalachia, the power of blues and the rhythmic intricacies of traditional African music.


In a melodically and rhythmically exciting collaboration these three talented musicians share their Celtic, Nordic and Appalachian cultures. The trio appeared to great acclaim at Celtic Connections 2009 in what was described by The Scotsman as “a memorably exuberant performance”.


Tickets for this event are £16 or £14 for concessions. For more information or to book tickets phone 0161 761 2216 or go online at www.themet.biz.
