Tony Norris & Jesse Anderson, The Knockabouts, Cisco & The Racecars all added to the 2015 Lineup

We have three more exciting acts to announce for Pickin' in the Pines 10th Anniversary! Tony Norris & Jesse Anderson will bring their unique mix of ageless old-time tunes and well-crafted originals in a torrent of Americana goodness to the stage for a captivating musical combination. The Knockabouts’ have a perfect blend of time-honored tradition, bawdy good taste, rowdy energies and smooth harmonies wrapped up in the best of authentic Celtic music. Pickin’ in the Pines 2014 band contest winners Cisco & the Racecars have their roots in traditional bluegrass music, but this six-piece band mixes popular, old-time, and acoustic country tunes that unite for an exciting musical fusion. These three Arizona based bands bring an eclectic mix of acoustic music to Pickin’ in the Pines for our 10th Anniversary that you won’t want to miss! Visit our lineup page for more details.

Beppe Gambetta joins the Pickin’ in the Pines 2015 Lineup

Beppe Gambetta is coming back in 2015 to join the Pickin' in the Pines lineup and to host the Beppe Gambetta Guitar Camp, intensive flatpicking guitar workshops! These three distinctive workshops will explore a fascinating journey in flatpicking techniques viewed from the broad perspective of Italian guitarist Beppe Gambetta. Beppe lives on the road 270 days out of the year, and gets his main musical inspiration from his traveling life. While his style is deeply rooted in American traditional flatpicking, Beppe has also done extensive research into the old musical forms of Europe, which inform the basis for his compositions. Widely acknowledged as one of Europe’s foremost guitarists, Beppe Gambetta is a true master innovator on the acoustic guitar. Both as a solo act and in collaboration with top-flight musicians around the globe, Beppe has a style that’s memorable both for its deeply emotive tone and for its technical brilliance. Beppe approaches his music from a unique stance, as an Italian musician in love with both American roots music as well as the music of his native country. He seamlessly bridges the shores of the two continents, creating a musical fusion where American and Ligurian tradition, emigration songs and folk ballads interact, weaving a deep dialogue beyond rigid classification.

Chris Brashear, Peter McLaughlin & Todd Phillips join the lineup for 2015

We are excited to announce that Chris Brashear, Peter McLaughlin and Todd Phillips will perform at Pickin' in the Pines 2015! Chris Brashear and Peter McLaughlin have performed and recorded together for over twenty years. Their previous duet recordings, Canyoneers (2003) and So Long Arizona (2008), established them as leading performance artists and creative lyricists with a particular interest in the Southwest. Grammy-award winning bassist and producer Todd Phillips is no stranger to the collaborative and creative process. His entire musical life has been dedicated to musical projects that are on the cutting edge of acoustic music. The Colton House residency has helped to add significantly, both in creative terms and in terms of public awareness, to an already impressive body of work by lyricists who have developed writing skills from traditional roots. This residency can be seen as laying the groundwork for future arts and education programs that benefit directly from the wonderful resources provided by the Museum of Northern Arizona.

Steep Canyon Rangers join the lineup for 2015

We are thrilled to add the Steep Canyon Rangers to the lineup for 2015! The Steep Canyon Rangers started as a group of friends playing music together for fun, but after more than a dozen years together, they are instantly recognized as one of the most successful bluegrass bands touring today. Their recordings and dynamic live performances have earned them many accolades, including Grammy and IBMA Awards, but most important, is the devotion of their fans. The Steep Canyon Rangers are Woody Platt (guitar), Graham Sharp (banjo), Charles Humphrey (bass), Mike Guggino (mandolin), Nicky Sanders (fiddle) and Mike Ashworth (box kit).
