New York’s Red Molly will be busy in 2011. Not only does its tour itinerary read like Gideon’s Bible, but with the amount of accolades and press this trio has been getting, one can only expect more additions. Its latest album, James, was released in 2010 on its own label and is a perfect addition to any bluegrass or traditional country collection. For three-part harmonies, stellar musicianship, and a feeling like you’re transplanted into the Ozark Mountains, make this trip. One listen to any of the four releases in the band’s catalog should be enough reason to venture out for the night. 1275 Starboard Drive in West Sacramento, www.redmolly.com.
