Aly Bain, Ale Möller and Bruce Molsky


Aly Bain, Ale Möller and Bruce Molsky

‘Never mind Transatlantic Sessions, Aly Bain and his Swedish-New Yorker accomplices in this venture redraw the map’ – Rob Adams, The Herald.

This melodically and rhythmically exciting collaboration by three of the world’s leading folk musicians was rapturously received on its previous British tour.

Sharing their Celtic, Nordic and Appalachian cultures are Aly Bain, Scotland’s supreme traditional style fiddler, Swedish multi-instrumentalist Ale Möller, and American old time fiddler, singer, guitarist and banjo player Bruce Molsky.

All three have for many years explored traditional music from a wide range of cultures.

As the Scotsman put it, they ‘are not only masters of their respective Shetland, Swedish and old-time US traditions, they’re also longtime pals, who have worked together over many years’ and as a result their performance shows ‘in addition to its exhilarating virtuosity, and dynamic yet seamless diversity, the extra warmth and zest of patent mutual ease, enjoyment and admiration’.

Their individual schedules are so crowded that they haven’t toured here for two years.

Don’t miss this musical feast.
