RED MOLLY Last Tour Before Indefinite Hiatus
Longtime Sanctuary favorites Red Molly are a beloved female Americana roots trio that feature three-part harmonies, crisp musicianship, and warm, witty stage banter.

Laurie MacAllister (bass, banjo), Abbie Gardner (dobro, banjo) and Molly Venter (guitar) have been part of the Sanctuary family, and we have cheered them on as they have grown from local rising stars to in-demand international touring artists.

Now, the group are going on indefinite hiatus at the end of August, with no current plans to get back together, so this may be our last chance to enjoy them.   Please join us to see them off on their journey and to wish them the best.




Opening for Red Molly is the soulful slide guitarist and songwriter Pat Wictor. Well known for his recent work as part of the vocal trio Brother Sun, he often performs with the Mollies and is thrilled to join them on this final New Jersey appearance before the ladies go on hiatus as a trio.

Pat's solo work is haunting and mesmerizing. He has played for Sanctuary audiences before with Brother Sun and has opened for the late Richie Havens. No one would give Red Molly's last appearance with us more reverence than Pat, and we're proud to have him back.


Tickets: $25

Photo of John Sebastian His voice became the soundtrack of the 1960s, '70 and '80s, earning him induction to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. He sang at Woodstock, and he played harmonica on the Doors' album Morrison Hotel.

His songs "Do You Believe In Magic, "Hot Time, Summer In The City," "Did You Ever Have To Make Up Your Mind" and "Welcome Back" are part of our lives. And no one sings those songs, or tells the many stories of five decades of making music, like John Sebastian as he returns to our stage.

Few performers are more charming and entertaining.

TICKET ALERT:  This concert is sold out.  Subscriber cancellations and additional seating will be available at the door beginning one hour before the concert begins.

To say that Leo Kottke "plays guitar" is like saying that LeBron James "shoots a few hoops."  Leo's unmistakable syncopated and polyphonic fingerpicking style draws on blues, jazz and folk influences, which can be heard on his classic songs “June Bug,” “Pamela Brown,” “Julie’s House,” “Pepe Hush” and “Jack Gets Up.”

But, don't take our word for it.  Leo's been honored with two Grammy nominations, a Doctorate in Music Performance by the Peck School of Music, and the coveted Certificate of Significant Achievement in Not Playing the Trombone from the University of Texas.  Though, when it comes to Leo visiting The Sanctuary, the honor is all ours.

Tickets: $30
