Discover why audiences are enthralled by Molly Tuttle, a virtuoso multi-instrumentalist and award-winning songwriter with a distinctive voice who will be the fourth performance of the 36th season of the Outer Banks Forum for the Lively Arts on Sat., Jan. 26 at 7:30 p.m. at First Flight High School.
“Come enjoy this young performer who ‘is an unbelievably virtuosic bluegrass guitar player with a whole lot of style and panache plus a very generous and humble stage presence,’ according to the American Songwriter Magazine,” said David Connaughton, president of the Outer Banks Forum.
Molly Tuttle began performing on stage when she was eleven years old and recorded her first album at 13 (The Old Apple Tree). A multi-instrumentalist with a beautiful voice, she has appeared on “A Prairie Home Companion” and “Hardly Strictly Bluegrass.”
A Berklee College of Music graduate, Molly won first place in the prestigious annual Songwriting Competition at Merlefest. She has graced the cover of Flatpicking Guitar Magazine, and was awarded a Momentum Award in the instrumentalist category from the International Bluegrass Music Association in 2016.
In August 2017, Molly was nominated by the IBMA in three categories: Guitar Player of the Year, Female Vocalist and Emerging Artist. She won Guitar Player of the Year and signed with Compass Records.
In the words of Paul Zollo of American Songwriter Magazine, this rising singer/songwriter/ guitarist “sings with the gentle authority of Gillian Welch, yet plays astoundingly fleet flat-picking guitar like Chet Atkins on overdrive.”
Molly Tuttle’s performance is sponsored by Stan White Reality & Construction.
Individual tickets are $28 for adults and $15 for students under 17, including NC sales tax, and can be purchased at www.outerbanksforum.tix.com and at the door the night of the performance.
The Outer Banks Forum for the Lively Arts is a non-profit organization that brings an annual series of seven outstanding diverse concerts to the area and provides opportunities for youth to participate in the arts. All of the performances are partially underwritten by community businesses.
