Join us for An Evening with Ketch Secor & Molly Tuttle, an intimate concert at the Birthplace of Country Music in Historic Downtown Bristol, Virginia-Tennessee!
A virtuosic, award-winning guitarist with a gift for insightful songwriting, Molly Tuttle evolves her signature sound with boundary-breaking songs on her compelling debut album, When You’re Ready.
Already crowned “Instrumentalist of the Year” at the 2018 Americana Music Awards on the strength of her EP, Tuttle has broken boundaries and garnered the respect of her peers, winning fans for her incredible flatpicking guitar technique and confessional songwriting. Graced with a clear, true voice and a keen melodic sense, the 26-year-old seems poised for a long and exciting career. When You’re Ready, produced by Ryan Hewitt (The Avett Brothers, The Lumineers) showcases her astonishing range and versatility and shows that she is more than simply an Americana artist.
For the last twenty years, multi-instrumentalist Ketch Secor has been front man and fiddler for Old Crow Medicine Show. Described variously as alt-country, folk, and mountain music revivalists, Old Crow is an American roots string band with punk rock attitude and energy. Its earliest days stretch back to Ketch’s seventh grade year in Harrisonburg, Virginia, when he and friend Christopher “Critter” Fugua began playing music together – and its explosion onto the folk / Americana scene in the early 2000s led to a revival in banjo-driven old time music.
“All of American music comes from the same place. It’s just sort of where it ends up. And country music is one of the destinations. You have the banjo, which comes from Africa. And you have the fiddle, which comes from the British Isles and from Europe. And when they meet, they meet in the American South. And that’s the big bang.”
