Meet the Artist: Red Molly
Prior to their Rockport Music concert at the Shalin Liu Performance Center, members of Red Molly will drop by Old Sloop Coffeehouse for an hour for a “meet the artist” session. They will tell stories and answer questions. They will perform a few songs, possibly from their individual catalogs. Admission is free, but donations to Old Sloop Coffeehouse will be gratefully accepted.
Friday, September 28 6:00PM to 7:00PM
Americana powerhouse vocal trio Red Molly is known for their gorgeous harmonies, crisp musicianship, infectious songwriting, and warm, engaging stage presence. Laurie MacAllister (bass), Abbie Gardner (Dobro), and Molly Venter (guitar) weave together the threads of American music — from folk roots to bluegrass, from heartbreaking ballads to barn-burning honky tonk — as effortlessly as they blend their caramel voices into their signature soaring, crystalline three-part harmonies.
Organic musicianship, a respect for the traditions of American music, and an obvious love of crafting music together lend a joyous atmosphere to their legendary live performances, and a natural balance to their studio recordings.
Gracing stages from Denver to Denmark, from Australia to Austin, Red Molly is renowned for their live shows. Four-time featured artist at MerleFest, breakout stars at RockyGrass, and the darlings of the Bristol Rhythm and Roots Reunion, the “Mollies” bring audiences to their feet, whether it’s on a grand festival stage or in an intimate concert hall.
Red Molly appeared at Old Sloop Coffeehouse in 2010 and 2012, way back in the early days. Members Abbie Gardner and Molly Venter (with Goodnight Moonshine) have also graced our stage.
