Molsky’s Mountain Drifters is Peghead Nation Old-Time Fiddle and Wade Ward-Style Banjo instructor Bruce Molsky’s trio with guitarist Stash Wyslouch and banjo player Allison de Groot.

The trio performed at the annual Wintergrass Festival near Seattle in February, which coincided with the release day of their second album, Closing the Gap. They were kind enough to stop by the Peghead Nation table at Wintergrass and play a couple cuts from the new album, including “The Little Carpenter,” featured in this video.
