Abbie Gardner and Jon Paul
Sunday, January 21, 2018

You may know her as the member of Red Molly who wears her guitar a little funny, but Abbie (and her dobro) will be on a solo tour with guitarist Jon Paul. The combination promises to be an evening ranging from mellow acoustic singer-songwriter to high powered blues and soul

Abbie Gardner, the fiery Dobro player with an infectious smile toured with Americana darlings Red Molly for eleven years. After gracing stages from Denver to Denmark, from Australia to Austin, the band took an indefinite hiatus in 2015, so Abbie is having a blast doing gigs with different bands, backing up her friends and stepping out into the spotlight for her own gigs!  No stranger to solo performing, she has three CDs to draw from, each with award-winning songs.  Tales of love and loss, both gritty and sweet, ride the back of her by-now familiar, formidable slide guitar licks. She channels Lucinda and Bonnie, but remains pure Abbie.  Her first songbook was published in December 2016 and shes looking forward to releasing a new solo CD in Jan 2018.  www.abbiegardner.com

Jon Paul, a 2008 Berklee College of Music graduate, studied songwriting and guitar performance, but has been involved with music all of his life. Growing up with a severe stammer as a child, music was his only way to escape the trapped feeling of not being able to communicate what he wanted to say. Jon Paul has been pleasing audiences everywhere from all around the Northeast, Texas and England with his unique approach to songwriting. His debut EP is a launching pad for a musician that won't be going anywhere for a while, "music is one of the most important things in my life. As long as I'm alive, I'll still be playing and writing."
