World Cafe Nashville: Molly Tuttle

In the 27 years that the International Bluegrass Music Association has been handing out awards, no woman had ever even been nominated for guitarist of the year, until now. Molly Tuttle, a 24-year-old California native and current Nashville transplant, was named as one of the five elite pickers vying for the trophy this year. She's also up for emerging artist and female vocalist of the year.

This past June, Tuttle released her first solo EP, the bluegrass-informed singer-songwriter collection Rise. Her songs, singing and solos, much like her demeanor, tend to have an inward-looking elegance to them; they're the outward expressions of a searching mind and a longtime dedication to cultivating her craft.
