Bruce Molsky: If It Ain’t Here When I Get Back

Bruce Molsky is an undisputed master of what has become known as old-time music. That is, traditional American songs and tunes from the pre-radio era. He has a great new record out called If It Ain’t Here When I Get Back. On it, he shreds the Appalachian dance tunes on fiddle or banjo, takes us down south with his rural blues and out west with his cowboy songs, and over the Atlantic to Ireland. But when he sings a ballad and accompanies himself on fiddle, Bruce Molsky really shines. Here are two of those lovely ballads. Enjoy!

  1. Bruce’s old time fiddling is, simply, the best….and this latest CD puts his songs in that category as well. His voice is like a second fiddle, matching the tone and bringing a new dimension to the songs.
