Red Molly plays Tusten

May 31, 2012

NARROWSBURG, NY — Red Molly will perform at the Tusten Theatre on Bridge St. on Saturday, June 2 at 8 p.m. The female Americana trio plays roots/Americana/bluegrass music featuring three-part harmonies with banjo, Dobro and guitar. There will be two 45-minute sets.

From its 2004 start, the trio got attention with lively, engaging stage performances. It moved quickly from NYC coffeehouses to the festival circuit in less than two years, winning notices for its performances at Merlefest, the Philadelphia Folk Festival, and NPR’s Mountain Stage. Last year, when founding member Carolann Solebello stepped down, Laurie MacAllister and Abbie Gardner asked Austin-based singer songwriter and guitarist Molly Venter to join the band.

“Molly has a unique, edgy tone to her voice,” MacAllister said. “Her sound is a bit pop-oriented, and while it hasn’t changed our overall sound, I’d say it’s a bit more gutsy, upbeat and modern.” The Boston Globe has praised Red Molly’s “tick-tight arrangements, crystalline vocals and caramel harmonies.”

Tickets cost $25, or $23 for Delaware Valley Arts Alliance members.
