Hey Friends!

Welcome to here.  Come on in and feast your ear sockets.  What The Wicked Pickers got happening is your eclectic blend of acoustic jazz, swing and folk . With bluegrass instrumentation you get a joyful sound reminiscent of the Punch Brothers, or  Darol Anger's Montreux Group... if they had Bonnie Raitt or Joan Osborne singing lead..

Breaking News:

Hey all, the Pickers long-awaited and much-anticipated (well, by us at least) third release 'Ballad of Quarter Inch Jack' is out!   It's sounding pretty darn good, if I do say.  It was a huge effort by all involved.  Click the Music tab for samples, and a link to purchase.
