Tonight at The Barns : Red Molly & The Steel Wheels
Red Molly brings their ballads, jazzy swing numbers, and bluegrass-infused pop songs to The Barns tonight. They will be joined by Special Guest The Steel Wheels.
Laurie MacAllister (banjo, bass), Abbie Gardner (dobro), and Carolann Solebello (guitar, bass) began Red Molly in 2004 in New York City. In 2010, Solebello stepped down, and Austin-based vocalist Molly Venter (guitar) joined the group.
Red Molly has released four studio albums. Their most recent album, Light in the Sky (2011), was praised as “a collection of songs with varied emotions, eloquently written and beautifully performed.”—Roots music blog NoDepression.com
All three Red Molly artists have released solo albums, and their most recent releases include MacAllister’s The Things I Choose to Do, Gardner’s Hope, and Venter’s Love Me Like You Mean It.
“Red Molly may be from New York, but their bluegrass and old-time gospel sounds and buoyant three-part harmonies are so down-home.”—The Boston Globe
The Steel Wheels, featuring singer Trent Wagler, bassist Brian Dickel, fiddler Eric Brubaker, and mandolinist and guitarist Jay Lapp, were awarded Best Country Song at the 2010 Independent Music Awards for the song “Nothing You Can’t Lose.”
Red Molly performs tonight with The Steel Wheels at The Barns, February 14, 2013 at 8 pm.
