Great Local Singer-Musicians Heath & Molly
We are excited to learn our buddies, Heath and Molly, are heading overseas to perform. Just as their new CD, Truth is taking off, so are H&M. Debbie Reynolds at the Owensboro-Daviess County Convention and Visitor's Bureau sent us the press release.
Revolutionary Roots-Rock duo Heath & Molly will make their European debut, with concert dates in the Czech Republic, in June of this year. The duo will depart for the Czech Republic on June 22 and will return to the USA on July 1, 2013. Scheduled concerts include dates in Prague, performances at the Olomouc Beer Festival, school shows in Olomouc, and additional dates in and around Olomouc.
“As an artist, one dreams of opportunities such as this. Sharing our music with an international audience while learning and gaining inspiration from the rich history and culture of the Czech Republic will certainly be one of the greatest experiences of our lives,” said Heath Eric.
“This is the opportunity of a lifetime and certainly a dream come true for us. We are very excited to be able represent Kentucky, and all of America. Weʼve been pinching ourselves for several months while we rehearse, plan, and prepare. We can hardly wait to get there!” added Molly G. Eric.
The opportunity for the trip to the Czech Republic presented itself after an intimate concert in Owensboro, Kentucky for the Owensboro Sister Cities and Regions Program. The Executive Director, Pam Wilson, hired the duo to entertain the Olomouc Mayoral Delegation in August 2012. The performance was highlighted by an unplanned special guest appearance on stage by the Mayor of Olomouc, sitting in on guitar and jamming a final tune for the excited audience with Heath & Molly! The concert was so well received and such a success, that immediately following the show the Deputy Mayor of Olomouc invited Heath & Molly to perform at the Olomouc Beer Festival in 2013.
“The city of Olomouc is thrilled to be able to bring Heath and Molly to open their International Beer Festival [the second largest in Europe]. I know that they will serve as wonderful ambassadors, representing not only our state and region, but the United States as well. I am currently in discussion with the organizer of the Beer Festival to have an Owensboro Day in 2014, highlighting several local artists,” added Pam Wilson.
Heath & Molly ʻCzech Republic Concert Tour Shirtsʼ are available now for only $10 each (plus sales tax and shipping). Shirt sales will help cover expenses related to the trip. Shirts can be easily and securely ordered online at their website.
Additionally, fifty (50) tour shirts will be donated to a group of children in the Czech Republic. “An old friend of ours challenged our fans to donate shirts for kids. Several of them started buying shirts with the stipulation that we donate them to kids while on tour in the Czech Republic. We decided to also donate a performance and make this something special for everyone. Weʼre limited to 50 shirts we can take with us for this program and only have a handful of slots left,” said Heath. ʻShirts for Kidsʼ are only $10 each and can be ordered online or by email.
Heath & Molly are professionally video recording their feature performance at the Olomouc Beer Festival. Additionally, they plan to record much of the trip for a LIVE DVD project to be released later in 2013.
