    Watch: Molly Tuttle Performs "Grass Valley" with Her Father, Jack Tuttle

    In celebration of Father’s Day, Molly Tuttle recorded a new performance video of her song, “Grass Valley,” featuring her father, Jack Tuttle, a music teacher and multi-instrumentalist, on mandolin and vocals. The song, from Tuttle's new album, Crooked Tree, recorded with her band Golden Highway, tells the story of going to Grass Valley, California’s annual Father’s Day Bluegrass Festival with her dad, where she was first exposed to the bluegrass music that inspired her to play. Her father is also featured on Crooked Tree, singing harmony on the track. You can watch the video here:

    Reflecting on the video, Tuttle shares, “My dad took me to the Father’s Day Bluegrass Festival in Grass Valley, CA when I was 10 years old and it changed my life. It was my first time going to a music festival and the songs that I heard on stage and jammed in the campground stuck with me for years to come. When I was writing the songs for Crooked Tree I kept going back to those earliest musical memories. I decided to close my album with a song about Grass Valley to give context to the music that I make now. I hope you enjoy this special version of “Grass Valley” that I filmed with my dad! Happy Father’s Day weekend!”

    Crooked Tree was recorded live at Nashville’s Oceanway Studios and features collaborations with Sierra Hull, Old Crow Medicine Show, Margo Price, Billy Strings, Dan Tyminski, and Gillian Welch. These thirteen tracks, all written or co-written by Tuttle, explore her lifelong love of bluegrass. "Molly Tuttle’s fingers move so quickly, she could pick your pocket without breaking stride," says the New York Times. NPR calls it "a set of dashingly virtuosic songs."

    Molly Tuttle and Golden Highway continue their tour next week in Massachusetts, playing The Sinclair in Cambridge, and a set at the Green River Festival in Greenfield. For details and tickets for all the upcoming shows, visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.
