Born in Dodge City, Kansas with a penchant for using her slingshot on old companions, Molly McGinn now lives in Greensboro, North Carolina. After a brief respite from singing she has returned with a vengeance. You may recognize her from Triad Stage’s production of Black Beard or as a co-worker at the King’s English LLC, or from passing her on the street.
Here’s Molly playing this song for the first time, for us and for you. Now Molly did enter our kitchen a few weeks before without a guitar and when the interview was over I called her and said I wanted her to play. So she came back, with her guitar and her two Buster Dillys and 2 new songs.
This is one of them.
When she played this song at Triad Stage a few days after playing here there were a lot of handkerchiefs and gentle sobs. How’s that for a Gift of the Magi?
You can catch Molly on December 29th at Studio B on South Elm Street in Greensboro performing with Holy Ghost Tent Revival and Paleface. Speaking of Holy Ghost Tent Revival, they played in our kitchen today and that piece will follow shortly after Pete Schroth.
