The Red Barn Community Music Series in cooperation with KCBX Public Radio and the Live Oak Music Festival presents Molly's Revenge in concert. Molly's Revenge is a dynamic, acoustic Celtic band known for its unique and infectious enthusiasm. Their arrangements of traditional Celtic dance tunes always leave audiences shouting for more.

He studied in Scotland at the Ceolas Music School in South Uist under the tutelage of some of the best pipers in the world. His authentic and unique style of playing has earned him the reputation of being one of the most accomplished pipers on the West Coast. David has composed close to 200 traditional style tunes, many of which have appeared on recordings, independent films, and television. John Weed is a classically-trained violinist who switched to playing Irish fiddle about 15 years ago.

The result is an old-time Irish fiddling style that compliments his forays into Scottish, Canadian, and American music. Stuart Mason has been collecting and performing traditional music for over 40 years. He has appeared on stage from Ireland to China performing Celtic, old time bluegrass, and his original compositions, which have won awards from the West Coast Songwriters Association.
