Saturday 28th April
The Carlile Institute
I’m delighted to announce a special double-bill concert by two exquisitely talented young American musicians. Molly Tuttle and Rachel Baiman will also join one another for their respective sets, making both sets a duo performance. This is guaranteed to be an absolutely scintillating evening of acoustic roots music!
Molly Tuttle is a phenomenal guitarist and banjo player, songwriter and singer, originally from California and now based in Nashville. Molly has been known as a bluegrass prodigy since her teens and has performed across the USA and internationally with her family band, The Tuttles. In the last couple of years she has gained growing recognition as a creative artist as well as an outstanding instrumentalist, touring with her own band and also with all-female quartet The Goodbye Girls. Molly’s star has been rising and earlier this year she won the IBMA (International Bluegrass Music Association) Guitar Player of the Year Award, the first woman ever to do so.
Rachel Baiman is another impressive young talent, a fiddle player, multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter best known for being one half of the duo 10 String Symphony, with whom she has toured across the world. Her recent solo release Shame has seen Rachel collaborate with numerous gifted young musicians on the USA acoustic roots and Americana scene, and the album has garnered critical acclaim and comparisons with the work of John Hartford and Gillian Welch.
The Carlile Institute is a beautiful historic building in the centre of Meltham village, close to Huddersfield and Holmfirth. The first floor Jubilee Room is an ideal setting for intimate concerts.
