Lineup Includes Country Legend Ricky Skaggs & Americana Trio Red Molly
July 17-19, 2014
Snowmass Village, CO (April 15, 2014) The Deaf Camp Picnic is returning again to Snowmass Village, July 17-19, 2014. The event that John Denver put on the map is back and better than ever providing a three-day weekend of getting together with old friends, food, festivities and great live music headlined by Ricky Skaggs and Red Molly.
Headlining Saturday’s Deaf Camp Picnic is country legend, Ricky Skaggs, who will perform at 7:00 p.m. on Saturday. Skaggs has experienced a life full of music. By age 21, he was already considered a "recognized master" of one of America's most demanding art forms, but his career took him in other directions, catapulting him to popularity and success in the mainstream of country music. His life's path has taken him to various musical genres, from where it all began in bluegrass music, to striking out on new musical journeys, while still leaving his musical roots intact. Ricky Skaggs has often said that he is "just trying to make a living" playing the music he loves. But it's clear that his passion for it puts him in the position to bring his lively, distinctively American form of music out of isolation and into the ears and hearts of audiences across the country and around the world. Ricky Skaggs is always forging ahead with cross-cultural, genre-bending musical ideas and inspirations.
Opening for Skaggs on Saturday, at 2:30 p.m., is the Americana trio Red Molly. Since 2004, Americana trio Red Molly has been bringing audiences to their feet with gorgeous three-part harmonies, crisp musicianship, and their warm, engaging stage presence. The band consists of Laurie MacAllister (bass, banjo), Abbie Gardner (dobro, banjo) and Molly Venter (guitar). This past year, the ladies were invited to open multiple shows for music legend Willie Nelson and they performed at the venerable Rocky Grass festival in CO. Their new CD "Light in the Sky" spent 20 weeks on the Americana Music Association's Top 40 radio chart and charted as Folk DJ's #3 Top Album of 2012. In 2013, the band spent the month of March touring throughout Australia, and in August headed to Europe for the first time, for Denmark's Tonder Festival. They have also been invited to appear for the third time at NC's legendary music gathering, MerleFest.
