The Annual Appeal for Old Songs Inc.

Our annual fund appeal supports our concerts, community dances, classes, festivals and other educational events such as our “hidden history” concerts. We ask for your support of whatever you feel comfortable giving. If you prefer to purchase a song brick, your money will help our capital fund to keep our building safe, warm, or cool as the case may be.

Either way don’t be a stranger and join us in 2017.

Bruce Molsky’s new trio with Allison de Groot & Stash Wyslouch. Tradition steeped in possibility

Bruce Molsky, “one of America’s premier fiddling talents” (Mother Jones) and Grammy-nominated artist on fiddle, banjo, guitar and song is delighted to present his new group already on tour in the US. Allison de Groot combines wide ranging virtuosity and passion for old-time music. Like Bruce, Allison loves collaborating and bringing new ideas to old music, and brings a fresh approach to the trio. Boston-based Stash Wyslouch is one of bluegrass’ great young genre-bending pioneers. Stash brings great sensitivity and real emotion to the trio, plus some superb guitar and vocal chops.
