Molly Cherington '98 Returns to Plainfield for CD Release Concert

Molly Cherington '98 will perform in concert at the Blow-Me-Down Grange on Saturday night, February 9, 2008 at 8pm.  
Tickets for the concert, which includes a pre-concert reception of desserts and refreshments as well as a copy of Molly’s new CD, “Our Minds Were Made” are $20.  Tickets for just the concert are also available for $15.  The $20 tickets are available for purchase in advance by contacting the presenter at 603-675-5454 or via email .  Either ticket can be purchased at the door on the night of the show, based on availability. 

Molly Cherington grew up in the Meriden, learning guitar when she picked up her father’s acoustic guitar while still at KUA. She immediately began writing her own songs, cultivating a creative beginning as a contemporary solo artist. 
A few years ago, Molly was drawn to the creative arts scene at the foot of the Rockies in the Denver/Boulder, Colorado area.  Using it as a base to tour nationally from, she has developed into a beautifully charismatic performer and song writer, poised to bring her charm, humor and sharp song-writing sensibility to an ever-expanding and eager fan base.

In addition to her blossoming music career in Denver , Molly has paired up with Slam Poet Katie Wirsing (2006 Denver Slam Team National Champions).  Their first tour throughout New York and New England in April 2007 was a success that opened a lot of doors for them.  And a series of dates she did last Spring , opening for songwriter Erin McKeown, solidified her place as a confident touring artist.   
She has also been asked to provide the soundtrack for “Ripples Cross,” an upcoming film by activist film maker, Mark Turner, who says of Molly, "If I didn't love listening to (the music) so much, I'd tell her to do stand up…She's charming and funny."
Molly has now come back to her roots in New England  in part to work with Mark on his film.  The next several months will find her based in Boston and touring throughout the Northeast.  This show at the Grange will kick-off a series of dates to showcase her new CD.
Since arriving on the live music scene, Cherington has garnered increased acclaim, with fans and critics referring to her live performances as works of beauty.  While she may be referred to as an “up-and-comer” (by the famed Colorado venue “Swallow Hill”), that title won’t last for long.  Her delicate demeanor coaxes the souls of those in attendance.  Grounded by a comforting stage presence and intelligent and self-relating lyrics, she identifies with her listeners, much like many of the folk greats that came before her.  She and her music are endearing, witty and most importantly, refreshing.
She released her first EP, Molly Cherington in March 2007 and very recently her debut full-length album, Our Minds Were Made, was released in December.  Now in the beginning of 2008, she aims to break out from under the musical radar. 
By coincidence, The Plainfield Community Church will be hosting their bi-monthly Chicken Pot Pie dinner at the Blow-Me-Down Grange from 5:30 – 6:30pm. on Saturday night.  A full dinner can be purchased downstairs at the hall for just $6.50.  Patrons could then go upstairs for the pre-show desserts and show.  While not required, reservations are suggested for the dinner only by calling 603-675-6510.
