Molly’s Revenge, whose lineup includes bagpipes, fiddle, whistle, guitar, mandola, and bouzouki, have toured extensively in the USA and in Australia, China and Scotland. The band is known for its unique and infectious on-stage enthusiasm. The classic combination of bagpipes, whistle, fiddle, and song, with guitar, bouzouki, and mandola accompaniment, guarantees an enjoyable experience for all fans of Scottish and Irish music. Their arrangements of traditional jigs and reels bring these dance tunes up to date with a driving, hard- edged accent that always leaves audiences shouting for more.
Guest vocalist Amelia Hogan possesses a singular voice: warm, supple, expressive, and intimate.
