Old-time fiddler Bruce Molsky performs on Martha’s Vineyard

Fiddler, vocalist, guitar, and banjo player Bruce Molsky, of whom musician Linda Ronstadt says “There’s an incredible power of history and tradition in his vocals,” didn’t start his professional music career until he was 40. Now in his mid-50s, he’s had a prolific solo career in addition to performing with the likes of Grammy-nominated Fiddlers 4, and will perform at 8 pm at the Chilmark Community Center this Saturday, April 16, presented by KCT Concerts.
