Popular Brisbane folk duo Gone Molly (Sally Harris and Rebecca Wright) are the featured artists for The Goodwills’ next house concert on October 22. Over just two years this exciting duo has become well known on the Australian folk festival and club circuit. They most recently performed at the Neurum Creek and Maleny music festivals in September.
Sally Harris was born in the north of England and writes songs that draw on the traditions of Anglo-Celtic tunes and story-telling. Her songs bring together a love of history, mythology, traditional song, tunes and folk music sessions. She and cellist/singer Rebecca Wright weave these songs and stories into contemporary arrangements for cello, guitar and vocal harmonies.
Rebecca Wright is a solo singer/songwriter and guest cello-singer with numerous acts. Artists she has performed with include Fred Smith, Judy Small, Cloudstreet, Mark Cryle, and The Wish List. Currently based in her hometown of Brisbane, Rebecca plays in a duo with her husband Donald McKay, and a Scottish dance band (The Ceilidh Clan).
Gone Molly (see live video here) is meanwhile finalising a debut CD with producer Pix Vane-Mason at his Conondale studios. Sally and Rebecca successfully financed the project through crowd-funding portal Pozible.
This will be the last Goodwills’ house concert for 2017 and follows a sell-out crowd for Irish songwriter Kieran Halpin on August 6. Other acts to perform in the Goodwills’ loungeroom through 2017 include Brad Butcher and Kelly Cork, Chuck and Chrissy Euston and Cloudstreet.
The Gone Molly concert starts at 3pm with a set from hosts The Goodwills and guest singer/fiddle player Helen Rowe. For bookings and directions, email Laurel goodwills (at) ozemail.com.au or use the contact page on this website. Tickets are $15/$12.
