Molly Tuttle & Golden Highway

One of the most compelling new voices in the roots music world, Molly Tuttle is a virtuoso multi-instrumentalist and singer/songwriter with a lifelong love of bluegrass, a genre the NorthernCalifornia-bred artist first discovered thanks to her father (a music teacher and multi-instrumentalist) and grandfather (a banjo player whose Illinois farm she visited often throughout her childhood). On her new album Crooked Tree, Tuttle joyfully explores that rich history with bluegrass, bringing her imagination to tales of free spirits and outlaws, weed farmers and cowgirls, resulting in a record that is both forward-thinking and steeped in bluegrass heritage.

Tuttle’s accolades include winning Instrumentalist of the Year at the 2018 Americana Music Awards, Folk Alliance International’s honor for Song of the Year for “You Didn’t Call My Name,” from her 2017 Rise EP, and consecutive trophies for the International Bluegrass Music Association’s Guitar Player of the Year; she was the first woman in the history of the IBMA to win that honor.

Molly Tuttle & Golden Highway—her brand new band of bluegrass virtuosos featuring mandolinist Dominick Leslie, banjoist Kyle Tuttle, fiddle player Bronwyn Keith-Hynes, and bassist Shelby Means—will tour the United States in 2024 in support of Tuttle’s album Crooked Tree.
