Molly Maher is the sort of musician you see once and never forget. She's got over a decade of experience playing around Minneapolis as one of the best guitarists in town, and it's obvious with every performance--there is no other path for Maher. If you ever stumbled into Nye's on a Wednesday night, where Maher and her band of misfits (officially Molly Maher and Her Disbelievers) once held a steady residency for over five years, you'd have noticed right away that the spirited country-folk-jam pouring out from the crammed corner soapbox of a stage is more like an extension of self for Maher than just another night on the job. Maher's Disbelievers are made up of Erik Koskinen (guitar, vocals, and, technically, half band leader, also of Dead Man Winter), Noah Levy (drums), Frankie Lee (bass), Paul Bergen (guitar, Hillbilly Voodoo Dolls), all local veterans and accomplished musicians in their own right. It's like there's a secret underground music club in the Twin Cities, an anti-cool club where you don't really have to know anyone to get in, past all the emerging electronica stuff and on-the-pulse-of-music swag, where there are only two rules: 1) No pretense; 2) Like whiskey. (Or maybe it's whiskey first.) (Photo by Donna Weaver)
