Fiddler Bruce Molsky performing in Portsmouth


One of the most influential fiddlers of his generation, Bruce Molsky is also a remarkable guitarist, banjoist and singer. His high-spirited music melds the archaic mountain sounds of Appalachia and the power of blues and the rhythmic intricacies of traditional African music. A visiting professor at the Berklee School of Music in Boston, he is helping to organize their new Traditional American Music program.

Bruce’s latest cd, his first solo recording in six years, is titled “If It Ain’t Here When I get Back.” The official release date is March 5, but the Common Fence Music audience will get an advance opportunity to enjoy his new music at this release party and performance.

WHERE: Common Fence Music, 933 Anthony Road, Portsmouth

WHEN: Doors open at 7 p.m., the performance begins at 8 p.m., Saturday March 2

COST: $20 in advance, $23 at the door
