Molly Tuttle Featured In LR Baggs Americana Sessions
The 2018 Americana Instrumentalist of the Year Performs “Lightning In A Jar”, “Save This Heart”, “Good Enough”
NASHVILLE, TN (DECEMBER 7, 2018) … LR Baggs has released three new acoustic performances from 2018 Americana Music Association Instrumentalist of the Year, Molly Tuttle. It is evident to see why IBMA named Tuttle “Guitar Player of the Year” the past two years in a row, with her incredible picking on “Lightning In A Jar”, “Save This Heart”, and “Good Enough”.
Praised as one of the most “brilliant guitarists in this new generation...who is equally gifted as a singer-songwriter” by Premier Guitar, Tuttle graced the LR Baggs Nashville studio with three beautiful and emotive solo performances during AmericanaFest 2018. The vocalist and multi-instrumentalist is currently on tour and is expected to release her debut full-length album in early 2019 on Compass Records.
The fourth annual LR Baggs 2018 Americana Sessions will continue to feature more talented Americana artists through the end of 2018 and into early 2019. Previously featured this year alongside Molly Tuttle are Lera Lynn and Chance McCoy. LR Baggs sessions have reached over four million combined views on YouTube this year.
About Molly Tuttle:
The 2017 release of Molly Tuttle’s debut EP, Rise, further introduced her to a roots music audience who had already enthusiastically embraced and elevated her. Her 2017 and 2018 wins for Guitar Player of the Year from the International Bluegrass Association (IBMA) were history-making, as the first woman to be nominated for the honor, and the accolades have kept coming in 2018 — Folk Alliance International’s International Folk Music Awards awarded her Song of the Year for “You Didn’t Call My Name” and the Americana Music Association named her Instrumentalist of the Year. The past year has also seen Tuttle performing for enthusiastic audiences on such prestigious stages as Celtic Connections, Mariposa Folk Festival, Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival, Americana Music Festival, Philadelphia Folk Festival as well as dozens of sold-out headline performances. With all of this recognition, it might be easy to forget that Tuttle has yet to release a full-length album. In between tours, she has been hard at work in the studio crafting her eagerly-anticipated debut album with producer/engineer Ryan Hewitt (Avett Brothers, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Lumineers), which will be released in early 2019 on Compass Records.
