MOLLIE O'BRIEN & RICH MOORE @ FIVE POINTS LIVE! on October 14, 2023
Mollie O'Brien and her husband, guitarist Rich Moore, have for nearly 30 years quietly made it their mission to find, mine and reinvent other artists' songs. They are geniuses at the craft of interpretation in the way that great singers, since the beginning of popular American music, have made the songs of their era their own. As songwriters they add their own tunes to the canon of American roots music they inhabit and show us they’re completely at home with their musical selves. Mollie won a Grammy in 1997 for her participation in Sugar Hill Records True Life Blues and is a member of the Colorado Music Hall of Fame. Rich, while known to produce some of the funniest onstage running commentary, is also a powerhouse guitar player who can keep up with O’Brien’s twists and turns, from blues to traditional folk to jazz to rock and roll. Between them they have released fifteen CDs including three as a duo on their label Remington Road Records. Mollie and Rich return for their third appearance at Five Points Live! on Saturday, October 14, to help us celebrate Maggie's big birthday and we recommend reserving your seats immediately as this combination of great music and a joyous occasion are sure to make this show sell out fast.
