molly tuttle

Molly Tuttle is one of the brightest stars in bluegrass, and among any styles of guitar players these days. WNCW's Martin Anderson attended the 20th annual AmericanaFest in Nashville, and recorded interviews with her and other artists we love playing. We'll hear a couple of solo tunes too, from Sound Stage Studios there.

Brevard's Sarah Siskind, in addition to her own recordings, has written songs that have been recorded by Alison Krauss, Molly Tuttle, the Infamous Stringdusters. She shares some of her trade secrets (we hope, anyway!) when she visits us in Studio B, in advance of the upcoming Songsmith Gathering May 18th at the Brevard Music Center. Sarah will be leading songwriting workshops there that week.

It's not often we encounter an artist who excels so well in various styles and industries, but Molly Tuttle is certainly a cut above. Having recently won guitar/instrumentalist of the year awards with the International Bluegrass Music Association and the Americana Music Association among others, she now has a rich, warm album in which the quality of her songs are as prominent as her picking.

WILKESBORO, N.C. (Jan. 14, 2019) – MerleFest, presented by Window World, is proud to announce new artist additions for MerleFest 2019: The Avett Brothers, Molly Tuttle, and Sean McConnell.

MerleFest is pleased to welcome these three distinguished artists to the 2019 lineup:

Our great friend, multi-instrumentalist, singer, storyteller and TV host David Holt returned to WNCW earlier this month to talk about his new, third season of his television series that highlights great roots music from our region.

  The 2018 International Bluegrass Music Award Ceremony was held last week in Raleigh, North Carolina at The Duke Energy Center for Performing Arts. The event was hosted by one of WNCW's favorite bands, HOT RIZE. Many of the IBMA musicians are long time friends of our grassroots, listener-powered radio station and we want to take time and congratulate the winners - Job well done!
