Red Molly with The Steel Wheels- 2/17Sunday, February 17 2013 6:00pm Doors / 8:00pm Start
ABOUT RED MOLLY
If one word describes the new Red Molly CD, Light in the Sky, that word is joyous. Once again, with the "tick-tight arrangements, crystalline vocals and caramel harmonies" that the Boston Globe praised, Red Molly creates an album with gorgeous a cappella ballads, bluegrass-tinged folk and a touch of jazzy western swing, all done up in Red Molly's trademark three-part harmonies, signature dobro licks and inventive arrangements. The title sets the theme for the 14 tracks: optimism, joy, and excitement for the future.
"Make room, Roches and Wailin' Jennys, Red Molly has earned a place among the elite female trios."
-John Platt, WFUV
ABOUT THE STEEL WHEELS
On the road and in the studio, The Steel Wheels are tapping into Americana traditions and creating fresh-sounding acoustic fervor. The band's new album Lay Down Lay Low succeeds in capturing the fire-in-the-belly spirit of the band's mesmerizing live shows wile fine-tuning carefully crafted lyrical stories that surprise the ear and linger in the heart. Acoustic instrumentation escorts the listener into a slow dance or a full-throttle ride, while lead vocals from Trent Wagler soar and find the perfect complement in supporting vocals from mandolin player Jay Lapp, with bass player Brian Dickel and fiddler Eric Brubaker joining for soul-thrilling harmonies.
"Americana music at its very best!" - Larry Groce of Mountain Stage.
