Molasses Creek 2012 Radio Quest
Spreading our music and Ocracoke Fig Cake around the globe!

Artwork by Lee Sauer

Hey fans! Molasses Creek is on the move and we're very excited!  Beginning in the spring of 2012, we are working to move Molasses Creek music onto the national scene (and beyond), touring more extensively and spreading our harmonies and love of our coastal NC home around the world. 

Stage 1: National radio promotion.  In March of 2012, Molasses Creek will be working with radio promotion specialist, Kari Estrin, of Nashville, TN to bring Molasses Creek's music to 540 folk radio programs across the US, Canada, and Europe.  Through this radio push, it is our goal to reach the upper levels of the folk-charts so that when we call concert halls in your hometown, instead of saying "Where is it you are from again?"
they will say "Yes!  I've heard of you folks and must have you come perform for us!"

All told, this radio promotion will cost approximately $14,000.  Because this is such a large investment for us, we have started a fundraising campaign with lots of wonderful incentives for contributors.  Molasses Creek invites you to be a part of the excitement. Let us entice you!
Hmm . . . might make a great Christmas present for a Molasses Creek Fan!
