Molly Tuttle

The April 1 release of Molly Tuttle’s first-ever full-length bluegrass album is a cause for celebration in the roots music community and an excuse for us to play a block of music telling the story of her new record Crooked Tree and her influences. Besides her Woody Guthrie-style frolic “Big Back Yard” and the haunting ballad “The River Knows,” we spin a track from Tuttle’s California mentor Laurie Lewis and her girlhood friend and bandmate AJ Lee, whose band Blue Summit actually includes Molly’s brother Sullivan Tuttle. Also new is “Once Again,” a lonesome honky tonk number sung masterfully by Del McCoury. And we feature some of the hippest string bands going – The High And Wides fro Baltimore, The Wooks from Lexington, KY and Nashville and Fireside Collective from western NC. Nokosee Fields stands out in our old-time music as a young star bringing a bit of his Native American culture to traditional music.
