OUTPOST: Kelly Hunt & Momma Molasses

Sunday, May 07
Doors: 6pm // Show: 7pm


Memphis-raised singer-songwriter Kelly Hunt paints stories as old and offbeat as her Depression-era tenor banjo, reimagining traditions of folk, country & old-time music in a style that hovers beyond the constraints of genre à la Anaïs Mitchell & Gillian Welch. Hunt’s debut album, Even The Sparrow, was released in May 2019 and named as a finalist for the International Folk Music Awards “Album of the Year.” Her upcoming sophomore album, Ozark Symphony, was recorded with Grammy-winning musician & producer Dirk Powell and is slated for release in 2023.

Based in Bristol, VA/ TN, Momma Molasses has toured throughout the Southeast. Her music interlaces influences from classic country, western swing, bluegrass, country-blues, and old-time music to create a uniquely timeless sound. Her rolling contralto voice scales over homespun finger-picked guitar, in haunting lamentations. Warm, rich, and passionate, her songs embrace and captivate listeners, soothing well-worn hearts with vulnerable lyricism.
