Hailing from New York, the trio Red Molly offers bluegrass and old time music spiced with lush three-part harmonies, exceptional musicianship, and apparently boundless energy. Laurie MacAllister and Abbie Gardner, plus newest member Molly Venter, have a lot of fun on stage, and it's contagious: the Boston Globe commented that "what is most striking is the ardor they bring to everything they do, whether snuggling into the sweet parochialism of an old spiritual, or the gritty pathos of a Gillian Welch tune."

The dynamic trio began as a happy accident around a campsite (at the 2004 Falcon Ridge Folk Festival), and is now drawing invitations from renowned historic national events like Merlefest, and is winning over audiences around the country. With a repertoire that encompasses the full americana spectrum, Laurie (banjo, bass, guitar); Abbie (Dobro, guitar); and Molly mingle songs by well-known contemporary writers, traditional tunes, originals, and standards from the bluegrass and jazz worlds. Their most recent CD is James.
