February News from Mollie & Rich
Hello everyone! Greetings from Denver. We're back from a trip to Scotland where we performed as part of the Celtic Connections Festival in Glasgow. What a great time we had with old and new friends, seeing the sights and hearing some of the finest music. We did our own concert on January 16th, some tapings for the BBC (to be released soon-we’ll keep you posted), a trip to Montrose (near Aberdeen) for a concert, and then back to the Festival where we finished things up by appearing on the Mountain Stage Show with none other than the fabulous Mavis Staples. This show will be made available for listening during the week of April 1st, and also includes appearances with Dougie MacLean and Joy Kills Sorrow. Check out http://www.mountainstage.org/mtnstagebroadcast.aspx for more details.
2011 is promising to be a busy year for us already. We’ve got some upcoming shows you can find out about on our Tour Dates page, including a set at the Swallow Hill Roots Festival appearing with David Crosby and Graham Nash and then up to Chicago for the Old Town School of Folk Music. But the big news is the O’Brien Party of 7 recording. In April, family members Tim, Jackson, and Joel O’Brien will join up with Mollie, Rich, Brigid and Lucy Moore to record an album entirely of Roger Miller songs. Following the record release, we’ll tour a bit later in the summer as a family band and perform at some festivals. We’ll keep you up to date on it all.
Check out our new item at the store page-the official Saints & Sinners shotglass. Suitable for all beverages and all ages, and just in time for St. Patrick's Day!
Stay warm for now, and we hope to see you somewhere soon. Mollie & Rich
