The Times (London) said of Woody Mann, “Don’t miss a chance to see him; you are unlikely to hear anything – or anyone better in the field that Mann has chosen to master.” His playing is artful, musical, and so effortless that you almost forget the impossible difficulty of what he is doing. His music runs from country blues to jazz to his own well-crafted originals. He’s a wonderful singer, a charming entertainer, and a legend in the guitar world.

 

“Mann is simply spellbinding” – Fingerstyle Guitar Magazine

 

…”Mann has absorbed so many guitar styles that he can change moods on a dime, weaving lyrical single string lines and chord harmonies that can take his tunes across the musical divides between genres” – Acoustic Guitar Magazine

 

“… Mann blurs the line between jazz, blues, classical, and world music creating his own sound in the process. Attempts to categorize his music simply miss the point. This is brilliant playing that demands to be heard.” – Sing Out Magazine

American folk and roots singer/songwriter Bruce Molsky is one of the most influential, exciting and revered fiddlers on the worldwide folk scene. He also happens to be a remarkable and hugely entertaining guitarist, banjoist and singer.

 

Bruce takes the traditional mountain sounds of Appalachia, adds a bit of blues ‘welly’ and a taste of traditional African music to make something totally his own and very, very exciting. He’s been called ‘old-time music’s answer to Ry Cooder’ and ‘The Rembrandt of Appalachian Fiddling’.

 

"When Molsky plays, you can practically hear the floorboards and rocking chair creak on the back porch" - Tony Hillier, Rhythms Magazine
