A show of this authentic Americana, folk, bluegrass-influenced music always feels like a gathering of old friends sharing favorite songs and good times.  Between knocking out audiences from coast to coast, the trio found time to record three albums including 2008’s Love and Other Tragedies, which spent ten weeks in the Top 15 on the Americana Chart, and 2010’s James which logged four months in the Top 40 on the Americana Chart, peaking at #4, and landing at #23 in the year’sTop 100.

Opening for Red Molly will be Voxology, from our very own central PA region. A shining example of the contemporary folk tradition, the band has performed at festivals in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Maryland, Arkansas, Virginia, West Virginia, Florida and Utah, where they performed during the 2002 Winter Olympics.

The show starts at 8pm, and tickets are $20/$26/$32. Reserve yours now at GettysburgFestival.org.
