Red MollyRed Molly

American powerhouse vocal trio Red Molly is known for its gorgeous harmonies, musicianship, infectious song writing and warm stage presence. Laurie McAlister (bass) Abbie Gardner (Dobro) and Molly Venter (guitar) weave together the threads of American music: from folk roots to bluegrass, from heartbreaking ballads to barn-burning honky tonk, effortlessly blending their voices into their signature three part harmonies. Gracing stages from Denver to Denmark, and Austin to Australia, Red Molly is now appearing at Franklin Park. Their latest CD, “The Red Album”, released in May 2014, was featured in USA Today.
