Molasses Creek in Concert
February 22, 2020 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm$12 – $22
Back by popular demand, Ocracoke Island’s own Molasses Creek returns to the Explorations series this February. As phenomenal songwriters and interpreters of song, Molasses Creek concerts run the gamut from traditional to contemporary acoustic folk, from sweet ballads with ensnaring vocal harmonies, to truly hot instrumentals.
Fiddler Dave Tweedie, Gary Mitchell, Gerald Hampton and Kim France are the four members of this amazing band who together create musical sparks.
The band performs frequently throughout the eastern seaboard and New England, and as far west as Oklahoma and New Mexico. They own and operate Deepwater Theater on Ocracoke, performing and hosting shows there and touring off the island extensively from October-May. Their 14 recordings have received airplay around the world, including releases in 2012 and 2014 reaching the top 5 in the National Folk Charts. They have won awards on “A Prairie Home Companion” and have also received a nomination for European Country Music Association Band of the Year.
