Pickathon’s #AConcertADay (multi-genre/prerecorded)
June 5 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 2:00 pm, repeating until June 7, 2020
This week: watch Rising Appalachia, Lido Pimienta, Patrick Watson, Marco Benevento, Phil Lesh and the Terrapin Family Band, Ghost-Note, and CAAMP
We’re on the ninth week of Pickathon’s A Concert A Day and we’re rolling right into June with a ton of momentum thanks to all the donations that have been pouring in for MusiCares COVID-19 Relief Fund! We’ve got a special lineup this week as well, with Americana eclecticists Rising Appalachia who just laid down a great Tiny Desk Concert at NPR. Lido Pimienta is a Polaris prize winning hero of Canadian music and her Lucky Barn interview is for real. The audience interaction from that show is intense and she actually called out someone in the audience; it was a powerful teaching moment. Montreal’s Patrick Watson is another much-loved Canadian artist, and Marco Benevento’s piano rock brings back some great memories from way back at Pickathon 2013. Last year we had the great pleasure of hosting an absolute legend of American music, Phil Lesh and the Terrapin Family Band. He put in a truly epic two hour set on the Woods Stage that we are VERY happy to be sharing with you next Friday. Headed by Snarky Puppy’s multi-Grammy–winning percussion duo, Ghost-Note brought some cutting edge jazz to Pickathon in 2017, and we’ll round out the weekend with indie Americana favorites CAAMP.
