Momma Molasses, classic country, folk, piedmont blues

Come celebrate American roots music—Americana and folk, country, blues, jazz, and even rockabilly—with the return of our popular summer concert series to the Garden – now in an online format!

Momma Molasses’ music interlaces classic country, folk, Piedmont blues, soul, swing, bluegrass, and old-time, which blend into a uniquely timeless sound. Harnessing her rolling contralto voice which scales over homespun finger-picked guitar, her sound is warm, rich, and passionate. Originally from Carthage, N.C., she grew up with a deep love of music. Singing gospel music in church, she learned old country songs from her Uncle John on guitar and obsessively listened to folk ballads from her parents’ dusty late ’60s record collection. While in college at Warren Wilson, just outside of Asheville, Patrick became greatly influenced by Appalachian folk music, and studied old-time, murder ballad singing, and bluegrass music.
