Mollie O’Brien & Rich Moore 

Mollie O’Brien and her husband, guitarist Rich Moore, have for nearly 30 years quietly made it their mission to find, mine and reinvent other artists’ songs. They are geniuses at the craft of interpretation in the way that great singers, since the beginning of popular American music, have made the songs of their era their own. As songwriters they add their own tunes to the canon of American roots music they inhabit and show us they’re completely at home with their musical selves. Their stage presence exudes a kind of comfort that comes from an intimate understanding of the music and each other. The resulting dynamic creates meandering melodies with harmonies between voice and guitar that build up and break down with punctuated resolves. This will be a rare opportunity to see a singer of such caliber perform in an acoustic setting such as West Newbury Hall.
