Red Molly at the Circle of Friends Coffeehouse in Franklin on Nov. 21
Red Molly is a hot female trio from New York playing fun, infectious Americana. They will perform at the Circle of Friends Coffeehouse in Franklin on Saturday, November 21st at 8 p.m. Red Molly consistently brings concert-goers to their feet with stunning three-part harmonies, crisp musicianship, and a warm, engaging stage presence. Abbie Gardner, Laurie MacAllister and Carolann Solebello (shown above, left to right) have a lot of fun on stage, and it’s contagious.
Guest writer Jake Jacobson runs the Circle of Friends Coffeehouse in Franklin, a non-profit organization affiliated with Franklin’s First Universalist Society.
In 2006 their first full length CD “Never Been to Vegas” quickly climbed into the Top 30 on the Radio & Records Americana chart, a rare accomplishment for an independent album. And listeners of WUMB radio Boston voted the CD one of the Top 10 CDs of 2006. Red Molly’s newest release, “Love and Other Tragedies,” their first full length studio album, combines their original songs with traditional American gospel tunes, and standards from the bluegrass and jazz worlds. It reached #3 on the Roots Music Report chart (June 2008), and entered the Folk DJ Top Albums list at #1 (July 2008). A new, as yet unnamed CD, will be released next month.
“Everything Red Molly sings is delivered with tick-tight arrangements, crystalline vocals, and caramel harmonies. But 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.” -Scott Alarik
Red Molly last January in Mansfield:
Austin singer-songwriter Molly Venter opens the show. Pairing creative hooky melodies, smart lyrics, and a voice that stops listeners in their tracks, Molly Venter successfully combines alternative folk pop with strong undertones of soul, gospel and a hint of country.
“Few singers turn first time listeners into eternal fanatics as effortlessly as Molly Venter… Her voice is like an unbelievable Burgundy; many notes, flavors, fragrances, and it all goes down like silk.” – American Songwriter Magazine
