Description

Full of mermaids and foxes and blooming, tangling briar, "Wildwood Bride" spins modern ballads with a rootsy '70s flair. Haunting, whimsical, and wild.

Hailed for her angelic voice and haunting compositions, Molly Pinto Madigan won first place in WUMB's Boston Folk Festival Songwriting Contest and was named "Artist of the Year" at Salem State University, her alma mater (it's in the third person, because then it doesn't seem like I'm bragging). She was also recently named "Favorite Local Female Songwriter" by Red Line Roots. Since her debut as the lead singer for the teen bluegrass band Jaded Mandolin, Madigan has submerged herself in the dark, luscious world of ballads, drawn to their magic, and her original songs echo with the whisperings of the American and European traditional music.

Madigan has performed extensively around the Boston area at venues like Club Passim, The Boston Celtic Music Festival, First Night Boston, Cantab Lounge, notloB Parlor Concerts, Campfire Festival, The Lizard Lounge, and The Bull Run, sharing the stage with some big names in folk music, including Claire Lynch, Scott Alarik, Bridget Fitzgerald (of Cherish the Ladies), Robbie O'Connell (of The Clancy Brothers), Susan Cattaneo, Tracy Grammer, and John Carter Cash. Molly has been featured on WUMB's Local Folk, WATD's Almost Famous, as well as WBRS's Off the Beaten Path.
