Molly Tuttle - PineCone Piedmont Council of Traditional Music

March 2, 2018
Fletcher Opera Theater

Influenced by the songwriting styles of Gillian Welch and Bob Dylan, Molly Tuttle is a virtuoso multi-instrumentalist and award winning songwriter with a distinctive voice. She will be joined for this concert by an ensemble of equally talented musicians who back her up and support her unique voice and original songs. Earlier this year, she became the first woman nominated for IBMA's Guitar Player of the Year award; she is also nominated for Female Vocalist of the Year and Emerging Artist of the Year. Tuttle started flatpicking guitar at the age of 8 and performing on stage at the age of 11, and she released her first album at the age of 13. Since then, she’s appeared on A Prairie Home Companion and at Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, and she has been featured on the cover of Flatpicking Guitar Magazine. She won the 2012 Chris Austin Songwriting Competition at Merlefest, and last year she earned one of International Bluegrass Music Association’s prestigious Momentum Awards in recognition of her instrumental prowess. The 24-year-old’s aptly titled new EP, Rise, debuted at #2 on Billboard’s Bluegrass Albums chart. Rooted in bluegrass but expanding the horizons of her musical genre, Tuttle’s dynamic style and drive shines through this EP. Written during a period of intense change that found Tuttle moving from California to Boston to Nashville, Rise covers a wide swath of ground, showing the full range of its maker’s abilities.
