DAVIESS COUNTY, Ky. (12/24/12) – Owensboro's Towne Square Mall is always jammed with shoppers this time each year, but on Saturday there were even more people, enjoying the sales during the last few days before Christmas, and also filling the mall for a free concert from Rumsey, Kentucky singing duo Heath Eric and Molly G.
The couple put on a family-friendly holiday jam, and, according to Eric, "it was awesome."
For Eric’s Christmas show, playing music was a real family affair, which includes the next generation of musicians in the talented family.
"Our seven-year-old, Jackson performed too, and he is always a big draw, singing and dancing."
Heath and Molly G have quickly become a statewide sensation, now performing over 160 dates per year, including more than 20 state parks annually. Eric stated that, "We intend to keep that momentum going."
You can find a complete list of upcoming dates, purchase any of their three albums and get a sample of their music at www.heathandmolly.com.
On New Year's Eve the two will head east to perform at Carter Cave State Park in Carter County, Kentucky.
Next year the couple will really head east, all the way to the Czech Republic.
"We've been booked to perform at the Czech Republic's International 2013 Beer Festival in May for two weeks, and we may other European dates added. We're very very excited about it." Eric said.
The former communist Czechoslovakia is now free, and ready to embrace the high energy acoustic harmonies of the two McLean County, Kentucky residents.
How did this unusual tour come about?
"We were fortunate enough to do a private show for the mayoral delegation from the Czech Republic," said Eric, adding that the tour is really the chance of a lifetime for them.
"If the European Union will let us in, we're ready to jam," Eric joked. “We've been working on it and ready to make it happen, we are really pumped."
Locally, in between dates in Europe, the couple will continue their heavy schedule performing dates throughout Kentucky and southern Indiana, much like the Towne Square Mall Christmas show on Saturday.
"We did six shows in five days, but this time of year many dates are private parties, so we were very happy to do the mall concert" Eric explained. "Our touring is so hectic; I just have to get up in the morning, pull up the website and go where it tells me to go."
