Nov. 12, Winter Wind Concert, Goodnight Moonshine, 7:00 pm, $20
Goodnight Moonshine is Molly Venter’s latest musical project, a collaboration with her husband Eben
Pariser. Co-writing often, Eben and Molly explore what it means to be in an authentic relationship,
singing of joy and grief in equal measure. Molly’s voice bends from a sweet moan to a gritty shout and
back into a playful run in the space of a few bars and “it all goes down like silk,” writes American
Songwriter Magazine; “few singers turn first time listeners into eternal fanatics as effortlessly as Molly
Venter.” The emotional potency of her voice is surrounded and supported by a lush landscape of
harmonies and minimalist orchestrations conceived by Eben on vocals and electric guitar.
