Following up on last year's show by Abbie Gardner, one third of Red Molly, this January we have fabulous vocalist, Molly Venter, also one third of Red Molly, gracing our stage with husband and guitarist Eben Pariser, in their duo project, Goodnight Moonshine

"few singers turn first time listeners into eternal fanatics as effortlessly as Molly Venter" says American Songwriting Magazine. Molly's trademark, the emotional potency of her voice, can change from a sweet moan to gritty shout and back, and is surrounded and supported by a landscape of harmonies and minimalist orchestrations conceived by Eben, on vocals and electric guitar. Venter's voice has caught the ear of industry giants, and been prominently featured on television, Apple Computers, and in Warner Brothers films. Willow Tree was a #1 hit on the folk charts in 2014 and was featured in USA Today. 

Co-writing often, the couple uses the creative process to explore a healthy authentic relationship. Both wholesome and irreverent, they sing of grief and joy in equal measure; Molly gives smooth delivery to Eben's assertions while Eben gives form and focus to Molly's raw passion. Courageous unveiling and depth of experience make the collaboration between this married couple, and now parents, addictively captivating. Their music encourages listeners to embrace opposing desires, and to challenge as well as support each other. Consummate performers, Molly and Eben have also appeared nationally and internationally, 100+ shows a year, with their respective bands Red Molly and Roosevelt Dime.
