Continue to celebrate the season with the Molly Maguires
For 10 years, local favorites The Molly Maguires have been entertaining Chattanooga. With their Celtic folk sound, the group covers the Irish classics and more. The group plays only about 30 shows a year, but their Christmas show is a highlight.
Historically Irish music has been as much a part of America’s music scene as country and rock and has grown out of the music of not only Ireland, but also Scotland and England. In fact, current Irish folk is often fused with rock-and-roll and other genres, which it makes it popular with a wide diverse audience.
The Molly Maguires concerts have always been well attended and well supported by the Chattanooga music community. The Molly Maguires feature musicians well known to the Chattanooga Irish folk scene: Marc Michael, guitar, vocals, bodhran, whistle; Julie Kunesh, vocals, bodhran, bones, percussion; Jon Wimpee, guitar, vocals; and Casey Phillips, violin, banjo.
"Our dear friend and all-around Super Cop Craig Joel has, very quietly and without drawing much attention to himself, been collecting clothes for the Chattanooga Community Kitchen," notes Marc Michael. "To my knowledge this is one of the few ways to get your donated items directly to the people who need them most. Your old clothes, blankets, etc. go directly to the people who need them with no middle man to 'skim the good stuff'. So please, pass the word around. Bring your old clothes, socks (especially socks), blankets, etc. to the bash Sunday night and lend a hand to the down and out."
Featured guests for the Christmas show will include frequent collaborators Meg Greene and Megan Ariel Clark along with special guests The Wolfhounds.
The Honest Pint is the perfect pub to enjoy the band while sipping a Guinness or Jameson’s.
