A blend of serious harmonizing chops and slick pop savvy

Time Out New York

This female trio have cut a niche as sunnyside Americana . . . immaculate vocal harmonies.

The Guardian

Red Molly combines the forces of three songwriters with unique character and style, creating a show that is larger than the sum of its parts. Known for their three-part harmony, their songs and arrangements lay bare a love of vocal blend. The band weaves together threads of American music—from country and blues to folk and bluegrass. Their innovative instrumentation is suited for roots-rock and heartful ballads alike, and the alchemy of their personalities onstage draws even back-row listeners into a sense of intimacy. Red Molly is simply a joy to experience.

Since forming in 2004, Red Molly has inspired countless female trios and has since reinvented themselves as a high-octane five-piece band in 2017. They remain a dominant force on the Americana/folk scene due in part to their laughter and spontaneity onstage. Singing spine-tingling high notes, Abbie Gardner is a dobro player and improviser from a musical family. She is a consummate performer whose songs have the punch of rhythm and blues. Playing guitar and tambourine, Laurie MacAllister draws inspiration from classic folk and singer-songwriters. Her voice stretches octaves, warm and romantic one moment, playful and subversive the next. Molly Venter has a smoky voice that is unforgettable and a moody approach to song-smithing. Quirky and fashion-forward, she moves in step to the music while playing guitar and tambourine. Upright bassist Craig Akin and percussionist and electric guitarist Eben Pariser fill out the sound, giving the show a broad range of musical options—from complex and hard-hitting to sparse and delicate.
