Red Molly will light up the stage at the historic Thrasher
Since 2004, the Americana trio Red Molly has been bringing audiences to their feet with gorgeous three-part harmonies, crisp musicianship, and their warm, engaging stage presence. They'll be appearing at the historic Thrasher Opera House in Green Lake on Saturday, April 12 at 7:30 p.m.
Laurie, Abbie and Molly of Red Molly have been touring extensively, promoting their latest CD "Light in the Sky," which spent 20 weeks on the Americana Music Association's Top 40 radio chart and charted as Folk DJ's #3 Top Album of 2012.
If one word describes the new CD, 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.
"Red Molly may be from New York, but their bluegrass and old-time gospel sounds and buoyant three-part harmonies are so down-home it's as if their notes are carried to you on the crisp air of the Ozarks."
Opening for Red Molly will be Jake Armerding. The Boston Globe calls the singer-violinist "the most gifted and promising songwriter to emerge from the Boston folk scene in years." www.jakearmerding.com ?xml:namespace>
