Molasses Creek Tour & Video

Fiddler Dave recently alerted me to Molasses Creek's Spring Northeast Tour.

Below is the list of places they currently have engagements. Feel free to contact Fiddler Dave at if you see a date opening and are along the route. They would love to add more concerts, fundraisers, and school residencies to the trip!

  1. I LOVE MOLASSES CREEK! Can't wait to see them in June on Ocracoke!

    Philip, is Marcy's "Dead Girl Walking" a play, ballard, or what? I am thinking it has something to do with her precious little daughter who sadly passed away last year. She has been mighty brave through it all.

  3. "Dear Girl Walking" is a DVD that chronicles Marcy's battle and victory over breast cancer. The video was professionally produced and is very moving. You can read more here:

    Of course, Marcy and Lou's lives were changed again when their daughter Charlotte died last spring. They are remarkable people.

    Thank you, Philip, for answering my question and reminding me Marcy fought breast cancer a few years ago. I guess little Charlotte's passing touched me so deeply when I read about her sudden death, that I blocked out my memory about Marcy's earlier "battle & victory" over breast cancer.

    Yes, I wholeheartedly agree that Marcy and Lou are "remarkable".

    They are an inspiration and a special Ocracoke blessing.

    Molasses Creek is awesome! I have heard of them for years but never actually heard them perform. Wow! I'm going to be looking for them in concert next time I'm on the island.
