It's pretty much become an annual tradition: a three-night run at the Birch to
kick off the New Year (right before Inauguration Week, and Monday is Martin Luther
King Day). This year we're pleased to have Jake Armerding join us on stage all three nights. Many of you remember him from his stellar performance with us at Wolf Trap this past August. He will also be opening Friday & Saturday's shows - a great solo act. Opening Sunday night will be the fabulous Red Molly, a female trio from the Northeast who came together at the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival from late night jam sessions. They've also contributed to Robbie's new solo CD. We're also pleased to announce that, like last year, we will be recording our set each night and selling CDs at show's end. These CDs will only be available on those nights. Another tradition is that these shows tend to sell out in advance, so don't delay being part of our great hometown rite of passage. SATURDAY'S SHOW IS SOLD OUT!
"Everything Red Molly sings is delivered with tick-tight arrangements, crystalline vocals, and caramel harmonies. But what is most striking is the ardor they bring to everything they do, whether snuggling into the sweet parochialism of an old spiritual, or the gritty pathos of a Gillian Welch tune. They come on less like stars strutting for their minions than pals sharing their favorite songs. In the friendly world of the coffeehouse, that remains a starmaking quality."
