      Nice to watch them but I thought the sound quality was not good. Was it really done on an iphone? Red Molly make a wonderful sound so it seemed a shame not to provide better quality sound equipment.

      Have seen Abbie Gardner solo, first time seeing Red Molly live. I like the way that Laurie, Molly, and Abbie alternated singing lead. Wonderful harmonies. Really enjoyed the music unplugged. One of the best CW shows I have seen!

      Guess what? "Dobro" means "good" in Bosnian! And plenty good you are, Mollies.

Bio

The music of Red Molly is full of joy. In the words of the Boston Globe, “what is most striking is the ardor they bring to everything they do, whether snuggling into the sweet parochialism of an old spiritual or the gritty pathos of a Gillian Welch tune.” Laurie MacAllister sings and plays bass, banjo, and guitar.

The music of Red Molly is full of joy. In the words of the Boston Globe, “what is most striking is the ardor they bring to everything they do, whether snuggling into the sweet parochialism of an old spiritual or the gritty pathos of a Gillian Welch tune.” Laurie MacAllister sings and plays bass, banjo, and guitar. Abbie Gardner sings and plays guitar and Dobro. Molly Venter sings and plays guitar. The point is, they all sing – and sing beautifully, with gorgeous harmonies and soaring solos. They sing bluegrass traditionals and jazz classics, contemporary folk masterpieces and their own graceful originals. Their fourth and most recent album, Light in the Sky, includes songs by Robert Johnson, Buddy and Julie Miller, and Mark Erelli, as well as a rollicking ragtime number composed by Abbie and her father, pianist and trombonist Herb Gardner, and a grown-up lullaby by Molly.

The original group came together in 2004 at the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival and quickly gained a large following. Molly joined the band this year after the departure of Caroleann Solebello. Their albums have been mainstays on the Americana charts. They played on Mountain Stage this year, and will soon tour Australia. Give their music a listen, and you’ll soon be hooked. As they sing on their red hot version of “Fever,” the classic by Otis Blackwell and Eddie Cooley, “what a lovely way to burn.”
