Where has Mollie O’Brien been? Maybe you thought she’d retired, or quit, or just plain gone away. In fact, she has been busy all along, busy singing and traveling and making music.
Singing you say? Making music?
Did you hear her at the 2006 Shetland Folk Festival with Rich and daughter Lucy? Or at the Telluride and Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festivals with brother Tim? Did you happen to catch her 2007 duo release with Rich, 900 Baseline?
Or maybe you were one of the lucky ones to catch her at the 2010 Celtic Connections. The Herald Scotland did, saying “Tim O’Brien’s sister Mollie raised the hairs on the back of the neck with her gospel-infused singing of No Ash Will Burn.” (Glasgow, Jan. 31, 2010).
So, it only seems natural that she continue on with “Saints And Sinners”, a team effort again with husband Rich, along with a host of stellar performers. Produced by Ben Winship and Eric Thorin, this song collection assembles an assortment of characters from all walks, and presents them in a way that will draw you in and keep you waiting to see what will happen next.
