Molly was born and raised in the beautiful city of Frankfort, Kentucky. When she demonstrated a quick and natural ear for music, she began piano lessons at the age of three and on to Suzuki violin lessons at the age of four. At nine, she went to study at the preparatory department at the Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music. She has extensive training including time in the Czech Republic, the Cleveland Institute of Music, and summer festivals such as Meadowmount and Tanglewood. Although she is a classically trained violinist, violist, and vocalist, her music is infused with a folk, bluegrass, and jazz performance style stemming from her Kentucky roots where she learned to let loose her improvisational skills.
