Molly Tuttle at Hardly Strictly, 2018



Palo Altans likely have been following her progress for more than 10 years,  but Molly Tuttle made her debut in 2018 at Hardly Strictly Bluegrass in San Francisco.

I got a report from my friend who went to Telluride that she was a big draw up there.

I recall reading about her when she was in high school in the Palo Alto Weekly.

Her father Jack Tuttle has taught at Gryphon Stringed for a whiles.

Molly Tuttle is already in the pantheon of all time great musicians from Palo Alto.

You can tell in the first 22 seconds of her recent cd — that I added to my phone via the old apple tree — that she is the real deal / the complete package / good golly!


Compare Steve Jenkins “doot doot doot” Gunn 1983 and chart- topping in 1995 to Molly Million Miles this year “doot doot-it”.

She records for Compass records in Nashville which is run by the musician Alison Brown and Garry West. Actually I found this podcast on kill rock stars worth the listen.
