One of the most compelling new voices in the roots music world, Northern California-bred artist Molly Tuttle is a virtuosic multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter with a lifelong love of bluegrass. On her new album, Crooked Tree, Tuttle joyfully explores her rich history with bluegrass, bringing her imagination to tales of free spirits and outlaws, weed farmers and cowgirls, resulting in a record that is both forward-thinking and steeped in bluegrass heritage. Golden Highway includes mandolinist Dominick Leslie, banjo player Kyle Tuttle, fiddle player Bronwyn Keith-Hynes, and bassist Shelby Means.

Opening: Wayne Henderson’s top-notch finger-picking is a source of great pleasure and pride to his friends, family and neighbors in Grayson County, Virginia. His guitar playing has also been enjoyed at Carnegie Hall, in three national tours of Masters of the Steel-String Guitar, and in seven nations throughout Asia.

Henderson will play with Herb Key, who grew up in a musical family in Wilkes County, and plays bass and guitar. He has played music for most of his life and has spent more than 30 years making, repairing, and restoring instruments.

Concerts are hosted in the outdoor amphitheater. Tickets are $25 in advance and $30 the day of the show. Children 12 and younger are admitted free. Food is available for purchase from Galax Smokehouse during the show.
