The Mateel Community Center in Redway presents the first ever Women's Winter Music Festival on Friday, Jan. 18 with special guests, Red Molly, whose latest CD the Boston Globe praises as having, "tick-tight arrangements, crystalline vocals and caramel harmonies."
Their gorgeous acapella, bluegrass-tinged folk with a touch of western swing, trademark three-part harmonies and signature dobro licks have earned them a place among the elite female trios. They made the jump from NYC coffeehouses to the festival circuit less than two years ago and landed on their feet, winning notices for their performances at Merlefest, the Philadelphia Folk Festival, and NPR's Mountain Stage. Red Molly has produced four albums including Never Been to Vegas in 2006; 2008's Love and Other Tragedies, which spent 10 weeks in the Top 15 on the Americana Chart, and 2010's James which logged four months in the top 40 on the Americana Chart, peaking at number four, and landing at #23 in the year's top 100, and their latest Light in the Sky.
Also performing will be Humboldt County favorite, Joanne Rand Trio, folksingers Anne and Pete Sibley and Lindsay Battle. Stay tuned for updated information on these excellent groups next week.
