I first heard Red Molly's dobro player Abbie Gardner as she shared songs with a couple of my camp mates at the Kerrville Folk Festival several years ago and have wanted to host her in a house concert ever since.  Her live show is truly unique - as both an award winning songwriter and interpreter of folk styles, a captivating vocalist, and a world class lap style dobro player, she has an unmistakable sound all her own.  Abbie took 2nd place at the 2006 Rocky Mountain Folks Festival Songwriter Showcase, was the 2008 Lennon Award Winner (folk) for "The Mind of a Soldier," and the 2008 American Songwriter Magazine Grand Prize Lyric Winner for "I'd Rather Be."  Abbie has released 5 full length recordings and her latest CD, Wishes on a Neon Sign was released in January 2018 and includes co-writes with Chris Stapleton and David Olney.
