Since 2004, Americana trio Red Molly has been bringing audiences to their feet with gorgeous three-part harmonies, crisp musicianship, and their warm, engaging stage presence.
The band consists of Laurie MacAllister (bass, banjo), Abbie Gardner (dobro, banjo) and Molly Venter (guitar).
If one word describes the new Red Molly CD, Light in the Sky, that word is joyous!
Once again, with the “tick-tight arrangements, crystalline vocals and caramel harmonies” that the Boston Globe praised, Red Molly creates an album with gorgeous a cappella ballads, bluegrass-tinged folk and a touch of jazzy western swing, all done up in Red Molly’s trademark three-part harmonies, signature dobro licks and inventive arrangements. The title sets the theme for the 14 tracks: optimism, joy, and excitement for the future.
CONCERTS COMING UP!
Unity Hall – a great space to perform – designed for listening!“It’s always great to perform at any venue that’s designed for listening,” said Rivergods founder Ben Parent, of Waterford. “… as opposed to a bar, which is fun for other reasons. It lets the songs shine, the music breathe … it allows for nuance and subtlety that you might sacrifice in a louder venue.” Norwich Bulletin 9/22/11

New England Folk Network Defines Folk Music"Folk. Folk music has long relied on oral/aural transmission, which lends to its accessibility and popularity in informal social situations. For purposes of this [New England Folk Network] website and this website only, I define “folk” as acoustic-based non-theatrical vocal or instrumental music created and/or performed without reliance on a classically or academically trained musical background; also, the subsequent evolutions of this music."
