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. In this video from a Peghead Nation studio session, they play the old-time song “Across the Plains of Illinois,” which they recorded on their first album. The song is attributed to Ollie Barnard (1892-1967) of Cave-in-Rock, Illinois.
