Na Molly Hicks
Deis do phobal an cheantair blaiseadh a fháil de cheol Appalachian, bluegrass, ceol tíre agus gospel. Tá aitheantas bainte amach ag na Molly Hicks ar fud na tíre.

As well as producing quite possibly the finest and most authentic-sounding blend of bluegrass/folk music in Ireland today, the Molly Hicks possess a trump card in the heartachingly beautiful voices of lead singers Ruth and Bernie, described by Siobhan Long of the Irish Times as “a thing of great beauty ... their voices communing with the seamlessness of Emmylou Harris and Alison Krauss”. Sometimes tending towards intimate and traditional, while other times very tempo driven and quite funky, the Molly Hicks always deliver illuminating and spontaneous live shows, and they never fail to leave their audience engaged and wanting more.
