A powerhouse trio encompassing old-time and bluegrass. Tony Trischka is called “the great banjo liberationist” by NPR. Bruce Molsky is one of the most revered “multi-hyphenated career” ambassadors for America’s old-time mountain music. Guitarist and singer Michael Daves’ unorthodox roots music has made him a leading light of the New York bluegrass scene.
Friday, August 11 at Zoetropolis in Lancaster.
“The most exciting vocal group in a generation”: Windborne combines bold
and innovative harmonies, styles from around the world, and a vocal blend that
comes from longtime friendship and lots of practice. They also carry on the
alliance of folk music and social activism, breathing new life into songs of change
from the past that still ring true in modern times.
Saturday, August 12 at the Unitarian Church of Harrisburg.
This brilliant duo blends profound understanding of Scottish traditional music with cutting-edge string exploration, intimate chamber music with ecstatic dance energy, and place the cello at the rhythmic heart of it all. Alasdair Fraser has been called "the Michael Jordan of Scottish fiddling", and one could say that’s no less true for cellist Natalie Haas.
Sunday, August 13 at The Englewood in Hershey / Hummelstown.
