Red Molly plays Pistol River Jan. 12
The Pistol River Concert Association is pleased to announce the appearance of Red Molly on Saturday, January 12, 2013, at 8 pm at the Pistol River Friendship Hall.
Americana trio, Red Molly, has been bringing audiences to their feet with gorgeous three-part harmonies, crisp musicianship and their warm, engaging stage presence since 2004. The band consists of Laurie MacAllister (vocals, guitar, banjo), Abbie Gardner (vocals, guitar, dobro, lap steel guitar), and Molly Venter (vocals, guitar). They perform original works composed by each of the group members, as well as covers of other songwriters including Hank Williams, Gillian Welch and Ryan Adams. Their enthusiastic fans are known as “Redheads.”
Red Molly was formed late one night at the 2004 Falcon Ridge Folk Festival. Three solo singer-songwriters were the last ones left at a song circle; they liked the way they sounded together and decided to form a band. The name Red Molly is taken from a character in the RichardThompson song, “1952 Vincent Black Lightning.”
From the very start, the trio got attention with their lively, engaging stage performances. They have performed on NPR’s Mountain Stage, prestigious festivals throughout the country and last year they were invited to open multiple shows for music legend Willie Nelson.
Tickets are $15.00 and are available at Wright’s Custom Framing in Brookings and at Gold Beach Books in Gold Beach. Tickets may also be reserved online at www.pistolriver.com or by calling 541-247-2848.
