Poor Man"s Troubles How could rural American music survive in the new millennium without Bruce Molsky? While other musicians opt for stale, over-analyzed replications, Molsky"s work tells the story of the music. His individualism, warmth, and knowledge bring a richness to his all-too-rare recordings. A mainstay on the widespread old-time music scene, Molsky"s visibility has increased immensely as of late. Aside from raves in national publications such as Sing Out! and the Washington Post, he has been recently performed at the Lincoln Center in New York, in the Smithsonian Folklife Festival in DC, and on the syndicated radio show Prairie Home Companion. Most often regarded as an old-time fiddle player, Poor Man"s Troubles showcases Molsky"s equal mastery of fiddle, banjo, and guitar, as well as his fine, affecting singing. "Bruce Molsky is the kind of musician you remember exactly where you were the first time you heard them. Bruce is the kind of musician who peels away a layer of perceptual fuzz off music, and you hear it wider and sharper than you thought was possible. . . . If you want to travel up the flinty spine of American fiddle, Bruce is the guy to ride with. He"ll leave you with all your internal organs aligned, and feet moving by themselves." --Darol Anger This product is manufactured on demand using CD-R recordable media.
