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
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.
