Re: “The Tuttles

On Jan. 8th The Tuttles with AJ Lee will be reunited for an exciting show at the Freight & Salvage, Berkeley and AJ Lee will release her new, debut EP! Molly also has a new EP from earlier in 2014 to share and there will be lots of great old favorite songs in the concert along with new material.

What people are saying about the band…
"Dave [Stewart, of the Eurythmics,] shared the stage also in mid-show with another new discovery, guitarist-singer Molly Tuttle, a North California native who sings with the gentle authority of Gillian Welch, yet plays astoundingly fleet flat-picking guitar like Chet Atkins on superdrive . " - American Songwriter Magazine

"Can This Kid Be the Next Alison Krauss?" - Mother Jones Magazine, interview with AJ Lee

Catch the next generation of bluegrass masters when The Tuttles with AJ Lee take the stage at the Freight. The Northern California Bluegrass Society (NCBS) has twice named them Best Bluegrass Band, and named Molly Tuttle the Best Guitarist, Michael Tuttle the Best Mandolin Player, and Jack Tuttle the Best Fiddler. Oh, and Best Female Vocalist? That would be AJ in 2010, 2011, and 2013, Molly in 2012. The band is up for awards again as finalists with Northern California Bluegrass Society (Best Band, Best Female Vocalist, Best Mandolin, Best Fiddle)The point is, these folks can sing and play bluegrass with skill and spirit far beyond their years—except for Jack. His years are already up there with his spirit and skill. He’s the father of Molly, Michael, and Sullivan, the band’s bass player, and he gave the kids their first music lessons in their living room in Palo Alto, passing along what he learned as a member of the original Tuttle Family Band that his father Gerald started many decades ago on the family’s farm in Illinois. The NCBS gave Jack a Lifetime Achievement Award this past year.
