    Awesome young talent for sure! I saw them recently and the Crooked Tree disc is great.

    As a side note, I confess I am saddened by all the fake eyelashes. Why world class musicians who can play circles around most of us menfolk feel the need to package themselves as a throwback to a previous century baffles me. I'd have thought we've moved beyond that. Outstanding musicianship regardless though.

    She has congenital alopecia, and thus is bald, so she wears wigs all the time. I can’t speak for her, of course, but suspect her lashes aren’t terribly full for the same reason, so she uses the prosthetic lashes instead. With how damn good she plays and sings I don’t care if she’s totally bald or decked out like Dolly, I’m still going to listen. And, she can look however she likes/chooses, regardless of her talent level…

    Besides, like 90s style clothes, my 20 something «#children#» tell me the lashes are back as well

    From a PBS News Hour broadcast two days ago, Molly discusses her alopecia and music...

    It's a fantastic record. I picked up a signed vinyl copy for my wife's birthday and we listened all the way through yesterday. Great stuff regardless of the status of her hair or eye lashes.

    I was aware of her alopecia, my reference was to the bass and fiddle players as well who are naturally beautiful woman without any makeup IMO. I know Molly has been in Nashville for over 5 years now, so I chalk it up to commercial packaging, which I guess I consider to be unnecessary. I'm totally with you on the band's musicianship, it's stellar. BTW, on the Crooked Tree disc, Molly is credited as the author on all 12 cuts so she's not just a great player but also writing the material.

    This is a 'Win-Win' for me. I'm a huge fan of their musicianship and I'm a huge fan of the previous century.
