Firmly rooted in old-time sounds, Slim Pickin’s have absorbed musical influences from a broad reaching transection of American music. Merging the contemporary influence of Old Crow Medicine Show and Dave Rawlings, and the traditional sounds of the Stanley Brothers, Doc Watson and Bill Monroe with their own unique tones, they embody the old-time tradition whilst also managing to reveal their own voice.
Resonating from an unoccupied niche in the resurgence of today’s acoustic string bands, they’ve opened for Irish folk legends Tir na Nog, Simone Felice’s The Duke and the King and shared the stage with Lisa Hannigan and Gavin Glass. Their own eclectic upbringings and an infatuation with western swing and early bluegrass sees them mixing original music with traditional arrangements of songs passed down through the years, as they deliver three-part vocal harmonies in time to buck leppin’ banjos, dobros and guitars. Their high energy shows are good old time fun, creating a sound that is as refreshing as it is downright addictive!
