Mollie O'Brien and her husband, guitarist Rich Moore, have for nearly 30 years quietly made it their mission to find, mine and reinvent other artists' songs. They are geniuses at the craft of interpretation in the way that great singers, since the beginning of popular American music, have made the songs of their era their own. As songwriters they add their own tunes to the canon of American roots music they inhabit and show us they’re completely at home with their musical selves.

Grammy winner, Mollie has long been known as a singer who doesn’t recognize a lot of musical boundaries, and audiences love her fluid ability to make herself at home in any genre while never sacrificing the essence of the song she tackles. She is a singer at the very top of her game who’s not afraid to take risks both vocally and in the material she chooses.

Rich, while known to produce some of the funniest onstage running commentary, is also a powerhouse guitar player who can keep up with O’Brien’s twists and turns from blues to traditional folk to jazz to rock and roll. He creates a band with just his guitar and, as a result, theirs is an equal partnership.

Their latest release is Love Runner on Remington Road Records.

After Thanksgiving Free Celebration with Ol’ Scratch

Doors open at 6:00 pm, Show at 7:00pm

November 30, 2019

FREE - We'll pass the hat for the band!

Society Hall, the performance space, concert hall and community gathering place at 400 Ross Ave. in Alamosa, invites you to come down on Saturday, November 30th for our annual “After Thanksgiving Pot – Luck Free Concert” event. This year we’re featuring the local band, Ol’ Scratch. Formed in Alamosa, Colorado early in 2018, Ol' Scratch spent the last year rehearsing and writing new music in lieu of an intensive touring schedule. The time spent honing their skills and studying their craft has instilled them with an uncanny sense of the delivery of their art. Now, with the momentum created by the last year, Ol' Scratch is on the move and headed straight up! With systems designed specifically for delivery of the freshest funk around, we promise you'll notice it lingering.

 

Band members consist of Marc Albion, Gabe Swanson, Andrew Naughton, Chris Spears and Alonna Younger. Marc Albion loves exploration; he prefers to treat music as a fluid and ever-growing work of art rather than a scripted routine of pitches and rhythms. Gabe Swanson grew up playing in a family band on whatever instrument was needed while learning choral and vocal techniques in church choirs, Gabe eventually decided to study Choral music and techniques before delving into the world of Keyboard and Organ Literature. This seasoned vet brings a breadth of vocal and compositional knowledge to Ol' Scratch. Andrew Naughton pursues his music career at Adams State University under Dr. James Doyle III. Since that time Andrew has been a part of many ensembles at ASU and is also one of the founding members of two of Adams State’s percussion groups; Alpine Back-beats, a Drum line and the new Steel Pan group, Mile High Pan Handlers. Chris Spears originally studied guitar at Fort Lewis College before transferring to Adams State University. Chris is the soil for the funk fields that Ol’ Scratch lays down. Last, but by no means least, Alonna Younger is studying music and voice at Adams Sate University. Alonna also plays the cello with the San Luis Valley Orchestra (performing at Society Hall December 5th!) and is excited to be part of Ol’ Scratch.

 

So come on down to Society Hall on November 30th for a free concert and potluck. Bring food to share and enjoy the up-beat rhythms that Ol ’Scratch will provide. We will pass the hat for Ol’ Scratch and enjoy their talents and Community. Doors open at 6:00 pm with music at 7:00 pm. Hope to see you there, Society Hall where community celebrates!

 Though still only in his twenties, Max Gomez has always had the heart of an old soul. As a child, the first songs he learned to sing were originally recorded in the 50s by Johnny Cash. As a teenage guitarist he adopted Big Bill Broonzy as his blues master. And as a budding performer, he apprenticed in the rarefied musical climate of northern New Mexico, where troubadours like Michael Martin Murphey and Ray Wylie Hubbard helped foster a folk and Western sound both cosmic and cowboy. You’ll find his hometown of Taos and nearby Red River right there between Colorado and Texas on both your sonic and Google maps. Splitting his childhood between there and a farm in the Flint Hills of Kansas, Gomez is at home in the heartland, too...

About Leslie Stevens:  Awarded “Best Country Singer” in the LA Weekly’s 2018 Best Of, you can feel Leslie Stevens’ voice reach the nails in the doorframe. She spins a high craft, with songs about donkeys and drinking and driving in heaven— and just when you thought she might light your living room on fire with a giggle, she’ll blast you through the skylight into outer space. The LA Times calls her "one of the city's best" and Chris Ziegler (LA Record) explains that Leslie has "the kind of voice you'll realize you've been waiting to hear since forever." She’s sung on records by Jim James, Father John Misty, Jonathan Wilson, and live with Joe Walsh, Jackson Browne, and John Fogerty, as well as other musicians not beginning with the letter “J.” Brave lyrically and vulnerable in spirit: Leslie never shies away from laying down what’s what, if only to leave a mark on the most golden part of your soul.
