Molly Tuttle, a name synonymous with virtuosic musicianship and groundbreaking achievements in the bluegrass genre, has carved a niche for herself that resonates with authenticity and innovative artistry. Born into a musical family, Tuttle's journey with the guitar began at a tender age, under the tutelage of her father. Her commitment to the instrument and the genre led her to the Berklee College of Music, an institution that played a pivotal role in shaping her musical ethos and connecting her with like-minded musicians.

Tuttle's professional career, which burgeoned in Nashville, has been a testament to her dedication and passion for bluegrass music. Over the years, she has released a series of albums that not only showcase her prowess as a guitarist but also her depth as a songwriter and vocalist. Her discography includes solo albums like "Rise," "When You're Ready," "But I'd Rather Be with You," "Crooked Tree," and "City of Gold," each marking significant milestones in her evolving artistic journey.

Her band, Golden Highway, is an extension of her musical vision, a collaborative effort that brings together talented musicians to create something truly special. The band's latest album, "City of Gold," is a reflection of their collective experiences, resonating with themes of travel, growth, and the pursuit of artistic excellence. It also has esoteric qualities calling on reflections of Alice in Wonderland, though in this case its the Bluegrass (see below). This album, celebrated for its intricate musicianship and compelling narratives, earned Tuttle and her band a Grammy for Best Bluegrass Album, underscoring their impact on the genre​.

Molly Tuttle's journey in music is not just a tale of artistic prowess but also one of personal resilience. Diagnosed with alopecia areata at the age of three, a condition that progressed to alopecia universalis causing total hair loss, Tuttle faced challenges that extended beyond the musical realm. Yet, her condition has not defined her; instead, it has underscored her strength and determination. Her ability to openly address and embrace her alopecia has made her an inspiring figure, not only within the bluegrass community but also to those facing similar challenges. Tuttle's story is a powerful reminder that personal trials can coexist with professional triumphs, showcasing her indomitable spirit both on and off the stage​

Tuttle's accolades extend beyond her Grammy wins. She made history as the first woman to receive the International Bluegrass Music Association's Guitar Player of the Year award, an honor she won twice. In 2018, she was named the Instrumentalist of the Year by the Americana Music Association, further establishing her as a formidable force in the music industry​

​Her influence stretches across continents, with a particularly strong following in the UK, where her performances with Golden Highway have been eagerly received. Touring very recently - January 2024 - with Tommy Emmanuel, it's clear that her return is highly anticipated, promising an enriching experience for audiences who have followed her journey and have been inspired by her music.

Molly Tuttle's story is not just one of individual success but a narrative that underscores the power of collaboration, perseverance, and a deep love for one's craft. As she continues to tour and create, her music remains a beacon for aspiring musicians and a source of joy for listeners worldwide.
