Red Molly


With their gorgeous three-part harmonies, crisp musicianship, and a warm, engaging stage presence, the ladies of Americana/roots trio Red Molly have been bringing audiences to their feet since first forming around a campsite in 2004. Laurie MacAllister (bass, banjo), Abbie Gardner (dobro, banjo) and Molly Venter (guitar), dubbed “The Twin City’s sweethearts” by the Bristol Herald Courier, moved from NYC coffeehouses to the festival circuit in less than two years. With their third year at the Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion, the Courier praised how the ladies "lit up the stage, as a massive crowd of adoring fans sat mesmerized by their silky smooth harmonies and superb musicianship." Light in the Sky, released in 2011, is Red Molly's first release with Molly Venter, who joined the band when original member Carolann Solebello stepped down. Spending 20 weeks on the Americana Music Association's Top 40 radio chart, the newest album brings back the "tick-tight arrangements, crystalline vocals and caramel harmonies" that the Boston Globe praised. Red Molly fans, referred to as "RedHeads", have always responded to the sense that the band is a group of friends, sharing songs in their living room. With the gorgeous a cappella ballads, bluegrass-tinged folk and the touch of jazzy western swing, the trio never fails to impress and delight. Their harmonies sparkle, their instrumentals impress, and their effervescent personalities shine like the brightest stars in the sky. Red Molly is red hot!
