Aly Bain, Ale Möller, and Bruce Molsky
Part of The Carrying Stream Festival

THE TRIO

Aly Bain is Scotland's supreme traditional style fiddler. His playing is unique – driving, impassioned and pure – with a vibrant, unmistakable tone that has earned him a following of ardent fans throughout the world. His most recent collaboration with Swedish multi-instrumentalist Ale Möller, created the album Fully Rigged a celebration of shared Nordic heritage. Completing the line-up is Bruce Molsky who has also explored traditional music from an astonishingly broad range of cultures over the past two decades.

Aly Bain helped establish the Boys of the Lough and began a life of intensive playing, recording and travel that continues to this day. Although his musical base is firmly in Scotland, his extensive travels have led to an appreciation and mastery of many kinds of fiddle music. In November 1994 he was awarded an M.B.E. for services to folk music. A further honour came in the form of an honorary degree of Doctor of Music, conferred on Aly in July 1999 by the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama.

Ale Möller found his roots in Swedish folk music by way of first falling in love with the sounds of Greece. En route he became a master of the bouzouki and a multi-instrumentalist with a lot of different flutes in his belt. He has toured with Mikis Theodorakis and been a front member of bands like Filarfolket, Enteli and Nordan to name but a few. While he still tours the world with the trio of Frifot, first and foremost he is just Ale, the multi-musician and performer who is a master at making people joining him in joyful musical experiments. Audiences crowd into concert venues where the Ale Möller Band are appearing to embrace the legacy of music taking shape before their very eyes, quite often in chaotic circumstances and divinely guided by inspiration and the moment shared.

Bruce Molsky is one of the most influential old-time fiddlers around. He is also a remarkable guitarist, banjoist and singer. His high-spirited music melds the archaic mountain sounds of Appalachia, the power of blues and the rhythmic intricacies of traditional African music. He holds a stage as few roots musicians can: with skill, a varied and deep repertoire, a reverence for the past, a healthy curiosity about music outside old-time, and a relaxed, conversational wit that draws listeners in as if they were sitting in his living room.

I thought there's be a lot more interest in this tour here but, of course, this is mainly a "singy" site.

Do go along though...you'll not be disappointed.

Bruce turned up at the Crooked Still gig in Leeds on Friday night and played a couple of songs with them. It was fantastic.

They're appearing in Liverpool this coming Friday (5 Nov), in a concert organised by the Liverpool Philharmonic. I've got a ticket; the venue, the Concert Room in St George's Hall is really quite special.

Just as Fred predicted these three provided one helluva night in Liverpool with musical pyrotechnics that far outshone the fireworks displays on offer outside for Bonfire Night. Coming from three very different traditions they shared their musical friendship in a way that was a joy to witness. The venue added a lovely warm resonance to the sound they produced, and I'd swear that at least one of the plaster caryatids joined in the applause that they deservedly received at the end of the concert!
Ale bent and swayed as he played as if held on invisible strings, Bruce displayed a loose-limbed grace, while Aly remained a solid presence in the middle as he coaxed lovely tunes from his fiddle.
If you get a chance to see and hear this trio them go for it - you'll be in for a treat!

Yes, like I said, one hell of a night, and the tour is by no means over. So there's still time to catch these guys.

Will there be a repeat of the tour? Well, there's a Shetland tune called Come Again You're Welcome. They certainly will be in Liverpool.

And it certainly lived up to it!
Timeless, mesmerising playing by all three. And lovely to meet Ale Moller again after nearly 25 years. It must be difficult geographically for these guys to get together that often. But, if I was a festival organiser, I'd be clamouring to book them for next summer. Understated, but superb musicianship from all three. Thanks guys.

I'm looking forward to venturing over the Pennines in wild weather this evening to catch their show at the Bury Met! I'm sure it will be worthwhile.
