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 Christa Burch possesses a singular voice: warm, supple, expressive, intimate, and instantly recognizable. Part of a vibrant new generation of American folk singers, Christa deftly marries intuitive musicianship and storytelling through song.

“There is an engaging freshness and yet an impressive maturity in their playing. There is also a lovely balance of repertoire, alternating a familiar with a most arcane selection of tunes and songs.” –Mick Moloney, National Heritage Award recipient.

“The instruments are traditional… but the wild passion they exhibit is thoroughly modern.” –MetroSantaCruz (CA)
