A poet. A performer. A soulful singer. A refreshing, youthful perspective wrapped in a wise soul. Molly Tuttle is an extraordinary spirit and one who is only just beginning what will be a long, memorable career. Her lyrics connect with our hopes, dreams, and struggles, and her scores have a strong foundation in contemporary folk, bluegrass and American roots music but with a modern day twist.
Tuttle is a virtuoso instrumentalist known for her flatpicking on guitar and her accomplished clawhammer and three-finger bluegrass banjo playing. She’s been performing on stage since she was 11 and recorded her first album at age 13. She’s appeared at Hardly, Strictly Bluegrass, Strawberry Music Festival, Gettysburg Bluegrass Festival, and numerous other festivals and venues across the country.
