June 22: Cole Quest and the City Pickers
Cole Quest and The City Pickers are a group of New York City musicians connected by friendship and a love of bluegrass. Cole Quest, grandson of the folk icon Woody Guthrie, has brought together a collection of eclectic pickers who have gained recognition on the local scene. Performing both Quest’s original tunes as well as traditional favorites, The City Pickers bring their special brand of high-spirited talent to the stage, with upbeat, knee slapping energy and a high lonesome sound that’ll leave you wanting more.
After recording their debut album at NYC’s renowned Magic Shop studio, they’re ramping up for a summer 2016 release. Having shared bills with acts such as Lucinda Williams, Parker Millsap, and Billy Strings & Don Julin, you can catch them playing all over the northeast region.
