Molly’s Revenge plays Valhalla
Get a taste of Irish music this Wednesday when California-based Celtic band Molly’s Revenge plays the Valhalla Boathouse Theatre on Aug. 24 at 7:30 p.m.
“The classic combination of bagpipes, whistle and fiddle, with a backdrop of guitar, mandola and bodhran guarantees an enjoyable experience for all fans of Scottish and Irish music,” states the band’s online biography.
“Molly’s Revenge has performed at many of the top folk festivals and performing arts events in the USA, and prestigious events in Scotland, Australia and China.”
Together for over 16 years, Molly’s Revenge visits South Shore as part of their tour celebrating the release of their newest album “Lift.”
The band expanded their horizons with their fourth release, dipping into Scandinavian, French and Swedish melodies and working alongside guest musicians from around the world.
“This unlikely collection of melodies was mollified with a generous dose of California sizzle and old-school grit. The result is a step up for the band. An evolutionary leap with plenty of … lift,” according to the band’s website.
“Their arrangements of traditional Celtic jigs and reels bring these dance tunes up to date with a driving, hard-edged accent that always leaves audiences shouting for more.”
Molly’s Revenge plays Valhalla Boathouse Theatre on Wednesday, Aug. 24, at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $20 for general seating or $28 for preferred. They can be purchased on Valhalla Tahoe’s website.
The Boathouse Theatre is located at 1 Valhalla Road.
