Wishing you a Merry Molly Christmas

The Moonshine Mollys are releasing a new Christmas CD Saturday, Dec. 7 in Cedar.

The Moonshine Mollys are wishing you a Merry Molly Christmas this weekend with the launch of their new Christmas CD.

Cassandra Smith, Mitra Kostamo and Rene Qualizza have recorded a new CD featuring Christmas classics such as “Winter Wonderland” and “Silent Night,” “all done in good ol’ Molly style,” as they say in a press release. Which means great three-part harmonies and country music in a style similar to the Dixie Chicks.

The Mollys recorded the CD at Moko Productions in Errington and will debut the album at  a Christmas Concert and CD Release Party Saturday, Dec. 7 at St. Philip Church in Cedar. The show starts at 7 p.m., and tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children.

Proceeds from the ticket sales will go directly into funding children’s programs at St. Philip.

The Moonshine Mollys will also be performing at Santa’s Workshop in downtown Nanaimo on Saturday, Dec. 21 at 2 p.m.

The Mollys — who count Patsy Cline, Dixie Chicks, Sugarland, Willy Nelson, Miranda Lambert and Eddy Rabbit among their influences — have been quite busy performing at various venues and charity events this past year and hope that will continue into the new year.

Performing for local charity events is a top priority for the Mollys.

“We believe that if we can give back to the community with our music, then that makes performing all the more worthwhile,” Kostamo said in a press release.

The Mollys have also recently produced a music video for their a capella arrangement of “Down in the River to Pray.” The video was shot on location at Englishman River Falls and was produced by Nanaimo-based Fish Video Productions.
