Molly Andrews

Molly Andrews is recognized as one of the finest interpreters of southern Appalachian music and varied genres, bringing directness and intensity to everything she sings. Born the granddaughter of coal miners in Bluefield, WV, her lineage trails deep into pre-revolutionary southwest Virginia, the 'lost province' of Ashe County, North Carolina, and is rooted in medieval descendancy of the British Isles and Europe; hence a natural affinity for the old songs. She employs intuition and versatility as traditional acapella and interpretive singer, multi-instrumentalist and songsmith, for the edification of all concerned. Molly was a guest in Góilín in October 2003
