Red Molly On Mountain Stage

Red Molly.
Red Molly.

Red Molly makes its second appearance on Mountain Stage, recorded live on the grounds of West Virginia's State Capitol. Built around the buoyant three-part harmonies of Laurie MacAllister, Abbie Gardner and Molly Venter, Red Molly has won over audiences and critics with solid songwriting and a relentless touring schedule. Its music has spent weeks atop folk and Americana radio charts; Red Molly's latest, The Red Album, was no exception.

The band's set includes several original songs but is peppered with a few covers, including the song that inspired its name: Richard Thompson's "1952 Vincent Black Lightning." Not long after this performance, the group announced a break from touring and recording that is no doubt long overdue.
