Mark Miklos....Fri,Sat

We have received numerous positive comments about Mark's solo performances at Pickin' In The Pasture. It takes a special talent for one man and his guitar to hold an audience the way he does. Mark does a great job as he digs into the old country material of Hank Williams and others.
Larry Efaw and the Bluegrass Mountaineers......... Friday

If you like real mountain music done in the style of The Stanley Brothers, you will really enjoy the sounds of Larry Efaw and the Bluegrass Mountaineers. Larry has put together some of the best hardcore bluegrass players and has come up with some outstanding music for those of you who appreciate the real deal. Larry has lots of friends at Pickin' In The Pasture!

Caroline Owens is an American Bluegrass and Gospel artist. She has performed alongside many of her heroes such as Alison Krauss, Suzanne Cox, The Isaacs, Larry Gatlin, Darin & Brooke Aldridge, Lorraine Jordan and many others. Caroline is excited to be partnering with Pinecastle Records and looks forward to performing for the fans she made at her debut appearance last year. Her voice reminds listeners of a young Dolly Parton! You will love her!!!
Serene Green.....Friday

We are always on the lookout for young people with promising talent. Jesse and I were introduced to these outstanding pickers at a pickin' party last summer and knew the folks attending Pickin' In The Pasture would love them! The future of bluegrass music is in very capable hands!
The Dave Atkins Band....Friday

Dave Atkins is the big man with the big voice! His show is all about high energy and powerful vocals. He is gonna rock The Pasture Stage on Friday!

Midnight Run hit it out of the pasture last year! We had to have them back. Midnight Run plays hard core traditional bluegrass music and takes no prisoners! These young guys come from the Great Smokey Mountains of Tennessee and I know you are going to enjoy them.

These folks just can't seem to slow down! They have appeared many times in The Pasture and never grow old. They put on the highest energy show in bluegrass music!!!
