The Celtic Society of Southern Maryland Winter Celtic Music Festival

The Celtic Society of Southern Maryland is proud to present Bruce Molsky at this year’s Winter Celtic Music Festival. 

The 8th Annual Winter Celtic Music Festival is hosted by the students of St. Mary’s Ryken High School, Student Organization for Improving the Arts (SOFIA), Saturday, January 12, 2013. 

In addition to a prolific solo career, performing on fiddle, guitar, and banjo, Molsky frequently joins genre-busting supergroups, like the Grammy-nominated Fiddlers Four, and Mozaik, with Hungarian Nikola Parov, and Celtic giant Donal Lunny. He was on Nickel Creek's farewell tour, and performs in a trio with Scottish fiddler Aly Bain and Sweden's great Ale Moller. 

An afternoon workshop will be primarily focused toward fiddlers, but guitar and banjo players are most certainly welcome, as Bruce is a master of all three instruments. Students of all ages are encouraged to bring a recording device, as tunes will be taught by ear. 

This workshop will focus on intermediate to advanced skill levels, but beginners are welcome to join in for the valuable experience of listening, watching, and learning from this master of traditional music. 

Workshop will be held from 2-4pm, followed by evening concert at 8pm at St. Mary’s Ryken High School, Romauld Hall Auditorium, 22600 Camp Calvert Road Leonardtown, Maryland. 

For more information, please email fiddling@cssm.org, or call (301) 375-0534. 

Seating will be limited for the workshops, so register early. Please contact the organizer for more information regarding the limited scholarships available for workshop participation.
