The Raisin Pickers
Performing Saturday, November 3, 2018
It’s the 26th anniversary of the founding of The Raisin Pickers, the Manchester-based string band that's cultivated
a loyal following in with its deft mix of rustic Appalachian music, old time swing, bluegrass,
and lately swamp driven Louisiana sounds.
Carol Wells Palms (bass, fiddle, vocals) a classically trained bass player who captures the heart of traditional music
without letting go of high musical standards.
Mark Palms (banjo, guitar, accordion vocals) a self-taught musician who chases the heritage of traditional music by studying
banjo knee-to-knee with old-time legends and gathering up field recordings from Louisiana to West Africa.
Billy King (electric guitar) his versatility as a multi-genre singer-songwriter is matched by his ability on a wide range of instruments. As an engaging performer Billy delivers a high-energy sound with lightness, dynamics, and sincerity.
"The Raisin Pickers are four musicians who understand completely where traditional music comes from
and what their role is in carrying it forward."
