This month's episode comes to you live from the Ellnora Guitar Festival at the Krannert Center in Champaign, Illinois and features the incredible Molly Tuttle. Molly and I were both performing at the festival recently and they asked me to do a live podcast, which I was thrilled to do, and had been trying to get Molly on the show for months anyway! Molly is at the forefront of young songwriters and pickers in Nashville, and I consider her to be one of the great new group of players that are writing and performing at an incredible level at a young age. Molly's songwriting is adventurous and wide-ranging, while her guitar playing is firmly rooted in the bluegrass tradition. The mix is compelling and exciting to hear, and is on display on her incredible new album "When You're Ready". She has been awarded the prestigious IBMA Guitar Player of the Year Award a couple of times already, as well as Instrumentalist of the Year by the Americana Music Association. Molly joined me on stage and we got to talk about her influences, her guitar style, and her recording process on her recent EP and the new album. We were confined a bit by time with the live aspect of the episode, but we crammed in what we could! Molly was also kind enough to bring her guitar along and show me some of the styles and influences we talk about, as well as performing a couple of tunes. Enjoy my conversation with Molly Tuttle, and be sure to subscribe and review us on Apple Podcasts!
