Rosalie Sorrels - The Travelin' Lady
Rosalie Sorrels is truly a national treasure, a master storyteller, a respected folklorist and a legendary traveling diva that possesses a rich, wise voice that flows straight from the heart to the mouth. Known as “the Travelin’ Lady", and immortalized in Nanci Griffith’s "Ford Econoline", Rosalie Sorrels sings of highways, homesickness, cats, crotchety old men, and heroic women in a bittersweet voice that lets you know that she has lived the life she sings in her songs. With her gritty fortitude irreverent humor and personal warmth she is far from the stereotypical 'folkie'.
Born of the timeless tradition of the all-night music session, Molly's Revenge is a dynamic, acoustic Celtic band known for its unique and infectious on-stage enthusiasm. The classic combination of bagpipes, whistle, fiddle and song--set against a backdrop of guitar, bouzouki and mandola accompaniment--guarantees an enjoyable experience for all fans of Scottish and Irish music.
Molly's Revenge has performed at many of the top folk festivals and performing arts events in the USA, and prestigious events in Australia and China. 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.
