 "You are dear people... keep bringing us beautiful, heartfelt songs... I love you guys to pieces! Although I enjoyed each of the songs, 'Five Minutes' gets me every time I hear it (and then stays in my mind for weeks!) Something between the rhythm & the subject--wonderful! "
Barbara, NY

Ever "the trickste

have resigned from MOLASSES CREEK
Lou (and then Marcy) performed with Molasses Creek from 2006-2014

  Two Top 5 National Releases - Half a dozen CDs - Seven Ocrafolk Festivals
Multiple Regional Tours - A handful of Folk Alliance Conferences
Two hundred Deepwater Shows - A killer Indiegogo Campaign


Here is a recent article about us with Molasses Creek.  We have officially retired from the band to pursue other projects.  From Molasses Creek blog:

Another Metamorphosis!

Molasses Creek at the final performance of 2014, Mountain Spirit Coffeehouse in Asheville, NC.

2014 has been an exciting and dramatic year in many ways for Molasses Creek; lots of fun concerts around the country from Ocracoke Island to Pittsburgh and Hershey PA, Albany NY, Connecticut, New York City, Kansas City, Chicago, Richmond and Washington VA, Stillwater OK, Charlotte, Wilmington, Black Mountain, Asheville, Chapel Hill, Yadkinville, Winston Salem, Southern Pines, Raleigh, Hatteras, and Swan Quarter, NC! 

For the second year in a row we had an album in the top 5 on the national folk charts, the biggest crowds ever at our Ocrafolk Festival, and even a hurricane on the 4th of July! After all this excitement, we end the year on a wistful note. Marcy and Lou have decided to leave Molasses Creek to make time to pursue other interests that had been put on the back burner for the past few years.  We've made some wonderful music together and we'll miss them, but certainly wish them well!
