Ocracoke Island 2

Ocracoke Island



Molasses Creek’s humble beginnings arose amidst exotic fig trees and rich tidewater marshes of isolated Ocracoke Island, NC, a magical place where stunning natural beauty mixes with community to create a rich melting pot of musical traditions. This high-energy acoustic group continues to win loyal followings with a captivating stage presence, elegant harmonies, blazing instrumentals, and a quirky sense of humor. Award winners from Garrison Keillor's “A Prairie Home Companion,” Molasses Creek has recorded 10 albums over the past 17 years and its members have been featured in Warner Brothers’ movie "Nights in Rodanthe." Molasses Creek’s roster includes Gary Mitchell (guitar & vocals), Fiddler Dave Tweedie (fiddle & vocals), Lou Castro (dobro, bass, & vocals), Marcy Brenner (mandolin, bass, vocals), and Gerald Hampton (mandolin & bass).

*We have 10 albums that have received radio airplay on folks stations around the US and some in Europe. These are available through, iTunes, Napster, Rhapsody. We appeared on Prairie Home Companion back in 2000, and the show has been replayed about 4 times. We also opened for Garrison Keillor in April of 2008 in Greenville, NC.
