The dynamic female trio that formed spontaneously around a festival campsite has been drawing invitations from renowned US events like MerleFest, Rockygrass and Mountain Stage. In June 2012, Red Molly opened several shows for legendary music icon Willie Nelson. In 2012, founding members Laurie MacAllister (bass, banjo) and Abbie Gardner (Dobro, banjo) welcomed the newest “Molly”, singer / songwriter Molly Venter (guitar), to fill out their lush three part harmonies. If one word describes the new Red Molly CD, Light In The Sky, that word is joyous. On the American Radio Chart, Light In The Sky spent 20 weeks in the Top 40. The album features gorgeous acapella ballads, bluegrass tinged folk and a touch of jazzy western swing. The title sets the theme for the 14 tracks: optimism, joy, and excitement for the future.
