For 23 years, Molasses Creek’s high-energy performances and heartfelt songwriting has brought the love of their coastal home to the stage. The band’s elegant harmonies and arrangements, stellar songwriting, blazing instrumentals, and quirky sense of humor have won loyal followers throughout the United States and around the world.
Molasses Creek’s inspiration arose amidst exotic fig trees and rich tidewater marshes of isolated Ocracoke Island, NC. Only accessible by ferry, Ocracoke is an enchanting step out of modern times into a world of captivating natural beauty, rich maritime history, ghostly shipwrecks, heroic lifesavers, crafty pirates, and a community of 900 independently minded residents.
Award winners from Garrison Keillor’s “Prairie Home Companion,” Molasses Creek has recorded 15 albums, reaching the #4 and #5 spots on the National Folk Radio DJ Charts in 2012 & 2014. Their 2016 release, People Get Ready, is now available at island stores and through Molasses Creek’s website.
