Pick & Mix night Wednesday 9 May 2018

Picture this: A group of friends gathers inside the old cabin on the mountain. In the glow of the firelight some of them pull out a collection of battered instruments to strike up a tune before supper.

It’s a delight. This is authentic music as it is supposed to be played and heard.

Luckily, this is not a scene from some Coen brothers’ movie but an event you can walk right into at the Auckland Bluegrass Club Pickers’ Night at the Bunker, next Wednesday, 9 May 2018, 8pm.

You can choose to watch the fun as part of the friendly supportive crowd, or you can perform as a picker yourself. Or the not-too-fast jam session at the end might be just the thing for you.

These nights are popular, so if you want a performing slot, get there early to put your name down. If you find someone to perform with, so much the better.

In other news, a new bluegrass festival called Kiwigrass is being planned for early next year and the organisers are surveying your views to help with planning. Being a bluegrass club, we love the idea of a dedicated bluegrass festival and we know it will help if you respond to the survey.
