Dynamic Celtic band Molly’s Revenge is known for its high energy and enthusiasm. The classic combination of bagpipes, whistle, and fiddle, with a backdrop of guitar, mandola, and bodhran guarantees an enjoyable experience for all fans of Scottish and Irish music. Their arrangements of traditional jigs and reels update these tunes with a driving, hard-edged accent that always leaves audiences shouting for more.
They have performed at many of the top folk festivals and performing arts events in the USA, and prestigious events in Scotland, Australia and China.
