Ted McCloskey and Molly Countermine have been performing together around Central PA for 20+ years. From basement bars with their full band to brew pubs, restaurants, and private parties as a duo, their unique style blends all genres and generations.
Ted: Ted McCloskey is a singer/songwriter, a multi-instrumentalist, a producer and film composer. He has nine records to his name alone. His music has been featured on AMC’s Mad Men and The Walking Dead, Anthony Bourdain’s Parts Unknown, Jerry Seinfeld’s web series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, NBC’s The Voice, and over 100 different shows. If you are lucky enough to catch him and his crackin’ band, the Hi-Fi’s, you get the feeling you have seen something special. It’s pure energy; it’s a snarling type of rock and roll that just isn’t made anymore.
Molly: Molly Countermine joined forces with Ted McCloskey in 2000, was a founding member of Pure Cane Sugar in 2007, and continues to perform weekly with Ted, her husband Rene, and drummer Daryl Branford with Ted and the Hi-Fi’s. Molly is a Teaching Professor in Human Development and Family Studies at Penn State, and she and Rene have 3 children.
