Get ready to experience a new take on classic American Roots music. On Wednesday, Aug. 2, Mollie O’Brien and Rich Moore will perform on Tahoe’s South Shore.
“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,” states a press release from the duo’s management.
O’Brien and Moore add a unique twist to the American roots music they love to play, making for captivating originality.
“Grammy winner Mollie has long been known as a singer who doesn’t recognize a lot of musical boundaries, and audiences love her fluid ability to make herself at home in any genre while never sacrificing the essence of the song she tackles,” continues the release, adding that the singer is unafraid to take vocal risks.
And Moore has no problem complementing O’Brien’s inclination to mix things up.
“Rich, while known to produce some of the funniest onstage running commentary, is also a powerhouse guitar player who can keep up with O’Brien’s twists and turns from blues to traditional folk to jazz to rock and roll,” states the release.
Catch the husband and wife duo at Valhalla Tahoe’s Boathouse Theatre at 7:30 p.m.
