GRAMMY-NOMINATED NATIVE ... Palo Altan Molly Tuttle has been nominated for two awards at the 65th Grammys, the Recording Academy announced on Nov. 15. Tuttle grew up in a musical family in Palo Alto before going to study at the Berklee College of Music and settling in Nashville, Tennessee. She is one of 10 musicians nominated in the Best New Artist category and one of five nominated for Best Bluegrass Album, which she shares with her band Golden Highway. Coproduced by bluegrass legend Jerry Douglas, "Crooked Tree" draws from both the roots of the genre and contemporary influences, with lyrics exploring everything from Tuttle's experience as a woman in the music industry to how the Bay Area's high cost of living drives away artists. Released on April 1 via Nonesuch Records, Tuttle and the band's first album received widespread acclaim for its varied approach and traditional sound. After the Recording Academy announced its nominations for the 2023 Grammys, Tuttle took to Instagram to thank the Academy and "the bluegrass community who has supported me since day 1!" The Grammy Awards will take place Feb. 5 and will air live on CBS, with more details on performers and hosts yet to be announced.

I was interested in Molly Tuttle's roots in Palo Alto and found this very interesting story PBS did on her. Luckily, it's on youtube - link below

Good for Ms. Tuttle! It's always a pleasure to read about someone from this area making their way in a career that is off one of the more typical Palo Alto paths. I hope she wins.

About the East Palo Alto Library story - is the photo of backed-up traffic the best in file for EPA? Surely there's a photo of the library or someplace other than what is shown!

Molly Tuttle is an absolute treasure. I remember seeing her perform in the area when she was a kid, and I was blown away by her show at the Guild in Menlo Park this year.

Best of luck to her.

That's a great feature about her from the PBS News Hour.

I was fortunate to see her (and Bob Weir) play with the Terrapin Family Band last Wednesday at the Guild Theater in Menlo Park!
