Introducing... The Molly Blooms

Celtic, Old-Time, Folk, Bluegrass and whatever falls in between

Lisa Timmons: Guitar, Vocals
Marion Halliday: 12-string Guitar, Vocals
Donna Bostock: Upright Bass, Percussion, Vocals
Rosie McNamara-Jones: Violin, Vocals

Coming together from strong musical backgrounds and years of playing in popular local bands, what started out as a simple idea to share traditional Irish, bluegrass and folk tunes, grew into three years of arranging covers and writing some originals.

The unique blend of vocal harmonies between Lisa Timmons and Marion Halliday, joined by Donna Bostock and Rosie McNamara-Jones, inspired the group to build on a sound that is rounded out by thoughtful instrumentation on guitar, bass, violin, and percussion.

The band has appeared at such venerable Philadelphia music venues as World Cafe Live, Fergie's Pub, the annual Midtown Village Fall Festival and Kahn Park Summer series. The Mollys were also invited to perform the WNTI 91.9FM Summer Stage Festival in north western New Jersey.

The Molly Blooms have been live in studio guests on two occasions on Gene Shay's Folk Show on WXPN FM Philadelphia.
