“After a long career that stands as a fiddle masterclass, comes a beautiful eclectic album of song and six-string wizardry, a rare treat indeed” - John Paul Jones
Everywhere You Go
Known and respected internationally for decades as a master fiddler, preserver of American music traditions, and multi-style collaborator, Bruce Molsky’s first musical love was finger-style guitar. Here, on “Everywhere You Go,” Bruce dives into intimate and unique arrangements of a wide swath of tunes and songs through his own musical lens, from African, Scandinavian, Scottish, Irish, American; both old and new. Longtime colleagues Darol Anger and Scottish Gàidhealtachd singer Mary Ann Kennedy lift things up on a few pieces. But mostly this is Bruce’s introspective and very solo exploration of a lifetime of his most loved songs and tunes.
It’s rare for a fingerstyle guitar record to cover as much ground with so much depth and authenticity.

Bruce Molsky has long been one of my musical heroes, the effortlessness and ease with which Bruce plays and sings has always been something I've deeply admired. It is a rarity to hear music that lacks ego and puts soulfulness and a respect for tradition at the forefront. Bruce is simply one of the greatest musicians there is, period.
Happy to be listening to this beautiful music right now. Close up. Intimate. What a pleasure. No pretense. No affectation. Just music. He always inspires me. I'm gonna go practice now!
Bruce Molsky’s guitar music is truly out of this world great. It is masterful in every single way. The musical narrative is deeply compelling, with incredible variety, and imaginative orchestration. This is soul enriching music.
Bruce Molsky is a guiding light of musical integrity and fearlessness. This new album, centered around his intrepid yet matter-of-fact guitar playing, is delightful. While the songs cover a wide, global swath, in the best way possible it all sounds exactly like Bruce.
