Friday, February 10, 2023 | 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Old San Ysidro Church
For three decades Grammy winner Mollie O’Brien and her husband, guitarist Rich Moore, have made it their mission to find, mine and reinvent other artists’ songs. As songwriters they add their own tunes to the canon of American roots music, boasting a fluid ability to make themselves at home in any genre. Known for his hilarious onstage banter,Rich is a powerhouse guitar player who can keep up with O’Brien’s twists and turns from blues to folk to jazz.
They met in 1981 at the Denver Folklore Center on April Fool’s Day. Mollie was singing with the vintage swing outfit Prosperity Jazz Band, and Rich was playing bass with The Late Show, a rock-steady blues outfit. Within a year Mollie joined The Late Show, and they began playing Colorado blues festivals and concerts. In the late ’80s, Mollie earned fame when she and her brother Tim released three critically-acclaimed albums for Sugar Hill Records (Take Me Back, Remember Me and Away Out On The Mountain). Eventually, Mollie recorded five equally well-received solo albums and was a regular on Prairie Home Companion. Recent years have seen a renewed focus on wife-husband duet recordings and tours.
