Bryan Sutton
Bryan Sutton is the most accomplished and awarded acoustic guitarist of his generation, an innovator who bridges the bluegrass flat-picking traditions of the twentieth century with the dynamic roots music scene of the twenty-first century. He rose from buzzed-about young sideman to first-call Nashville session musician to become a member of one of history’s greatest bluegrass bands, Ricky Skaggs and Kentucky Thunder. He is grounded in quiet professionalism and ever-expanding musicianship.

Sutton is a GRAMMY Award winner and a nine-time International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) Guitar Player of the Year. But these are only the most visible signs of Sutton’s accomplishments. He inherited and internalized a technically demanding instrumental style and has become for young musicians of today the same kind of model and hero that Tony Rice and Clarence White were for him. And supplementing his instrumental work, he is now a bandleader, record producer, mentor, educator, and leader in online music instruction.

Accepting his most recent IBMA Award in 2015, Sutton focused his speech not on the people who helped him along the way (he had done so amply in prior years) but rather on alerting the audience to a dozen or more young and emerging bluegrass guitar players who were worthy of attention. It was a gesture of magnanimity and humility that only bolstered the central role Sutton has secured in the history of the bluegrass guitar.

Molly Tuttle
Molly Tuttle is a virtuoso multi-instrumentalist and award-winning songwriter with a distinctive voice. She has turned the heads of even the most seasoned industry professionals. Growing up in a musical family, Tuttle began performing on stage when she was eleven and recorded her first album, The Old Apple Tree, at age thirteen. Since then, she has appeared on the weekly radio program A Prairie Home Companion and at San Francisco’s annual Hardly Strictly Bluegrass festival. She was featured on the cover of Flatpicking Guitar Magazine, won first place in the prestigious Chris Austin Songwriting Competition at the Merlefest music festival, and graduated from the Berklee College of Music in Boston, which she attended on a Hazel Dickens Memorial Scholarship. Her gorgeous voice, impeccable guitar playing, and sensitive songwriting makes her a star on the rise. She has already received more than two million YouTube views and recently released two EPs with the Boston-based quartet the Goodbye Girls and as a duo with John Mailander. She now makes her home in Nashville and spends time touring, writing, and recording.
