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.

Molasses Creek’s high-energy performances and phenomenal songwriting bring the love of their coastal home to the stage. The band’s elegant harmonies and arrangements, blazing instrumentals, and quirky sense of humor have won loyal followers throughout the United States and around the world.

Award winners from Garrison Keillor’s “Prairie Home Companion,” Molasses Creek has recorded 12 albums over the past 19 years. In April of 2012, Molasses Creek’s new release, “An Island Out of Time” reached the #4 spot on the National Folk Radio DJ Charts!

Molasses Creek’s roster includes Gary Mitchell (guitar/vocals), Fiddler Dave Tweedie (fiddle/vocals), Lou Castro (dobro/bass/vocals), Marcy Brenner (mandolin/banjolin/bass/vocals), and Gerald Hampton (mandolin/upright bass).
