Riverside Rhythm & Rhyme Welcomes Welcomes Abbie Gardner
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 she’s looking forward to releasing a new solo CD in Jan 2018.
Marion Halliday and her band, Trickster Sister to open. Trickster Sister is proud purveyor of their own special blend of bluegrass and bourbon infused, original, women-powered Americana.
