That’s it for us for another week dear reader – instead of doomscrolling for the next four minutes, why not listen to this new song instead from the always terrific Molly Tuttle. ‘Dooley’s Farm’ is the third song to be released from Tuttle’s forthcoming Nonesuch debut ‘Crooked Tree’ due for release on April 1st, which features special guest Billy Strings alongside her new bluegrass collective Golden Highway. Of the track, Tuttle said, “When I was a kid I loved ‘Dooley,’ a song about a moonshiner whose daughters helped him run the family still. In ‘Dooley’s Farm’ I decided to recast Dooley as a modern-day outlaw, writing from the perspective of his granddaughter. I wrote this song with Ketch Secor and brought Billy Strings in to lend his amazing voice and playing. I had fun updating this classic bluegrass character while taking some inspiration from my real grandfather who was a farmer (but not that kind of farmer).” Have a good one.
