Zac Sokolow plays banjo and fiddle and sings, playing a combination of old-time ballads, gospel songs, blues, fiddle tunes and banjo instrumentals. 

 

Coming from a family of American folk musicians going back at least four generations, Zac started out playing music as a child for all kinds of social functions along side his father, Fred Sokolow. While spending years working as a furniture mover, construction worker, handyman, Zac busked all over the streets of Los Angeles, often playing with fellow Los Angeles old-time musicians Frank Fairfield and Jerron “Blind Boy” Paxton. 

 

Zac went on to tour the world with Frank Fairfield and with Los Angeles roots-rock band The Americans. He performed at such notable festivals as Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, Hyde Park Festival, Stockholm Americana Festival, Bristol Rhythm and Roots, appeared on NPR’s Tiny Desk concerts, BBC’s American Epic documentary, recorded with Jack White and T Bone Burnett, and worked in musical diplomacy on behalf of the Department of State, performing around South-East Asia, Europe, and North Africa.
