Congratulations to Molly Tuttle, who, already a four-time International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) Award–winner, is nominated in five categories for the 2022 IBMAs: Entertainer of the Year, Album of the Year (Crooked Tree), Female Vocalist of the Year, Guitar Player of the Year, and Instrumental Group of the Year (Molly Tuttle & Golden Highway). Golden Highway's own Bronwyn Keith-Hynes has also been nominated for Fiddle Player of the Year. The ceremony will be held at Raleigh’s Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts on Thursday, September 29.

The nominations add to a landmark year for Tuttle, who released her acclaimed Nonesuch debut album, Crooked Tree, earlier this year. Produced by Tuttle and Jerry Douglas and recorded live at Nashville’s Oceanway Studios, Crooked Tree explores Tuttle’s love of bluegrass, which she discovered through her father and her grandfather, a banjo player. The record also features collaborations with Sierra Hull, Old Crow Medicine Show, Margo Price, Billy Strings, Dan Tyminski and Gillian Welch. You can watch a live album-release performance of the album track "San Francisco Blues," released yesterday, here:

Tuttle and Golden Highway were recently featured on CBS Saturday Morning as part of their Saturday Sessions series, performing three songs from the album: “She’ll Change,” “Over the Line” and the "Crooked Tree"; you can watch that here. Tuttle was also the subject of a PBS NewsHour profile last month, which can be seen here.

Tuttle and Golden Highway—Bronwyn Keith-Hynes (fiddle), Dominick Leslie (mandolin), Shelby Means (bass), and Kyle Tuttle (banjo)—will tour throughout the summer and fall, including several major festivals like Bristol Rhythm and Roots Reunion, Bourbon & Beyond, AmericanaFest, and Pilgrimage Music & Cultural Festival.

    Rhiannon Giddens was on PBS NewsHour to talk with Jeffrey Brown about her new role as artistic director of Silkroad, with whom she just concluded her first tour. "I love getting thrown something that I have never done before, but that I think I have the goods to do, but I have to figure out how to do it,” Giddens tells Brown. “And so I always say yes first and figure it out later.” You can watch Giddens’s conversation with Brown, who calls her "a boundless bridger of musical worlds and styles," here.
