Pickin' In The Pasture 2014 Band Lineup
Come experience a powerful lineup of legendary bluegrass artists and outstanding new talent in the beautiful Finger Lakes of New York State! We think this year's performers make up the strongest band lineup ever. Note that we have added a full schedule of music on Thursday featuring two of the top acts in bluegrass music! Celebrate 17 years of world-class with us and all your bluegrass friends August 21-24th 2014!

Michael Cleveland and Flamekeeper..........Thursday

It's been a few years since Michael Cleveland has brought his fantastic fiddling to the Pickin' In The Pasture stage. We have had many requests to bring him back and fortunately his 2014 schedule allows it! Michael is considered by many to be the top fiddle player in bluegrass music and has filled Flamekeeper with some of the best singers and pickers in the business.
Smokey Greene............Thursday

Smokey Greene and his guitar continues to entertain thousands of his fans year after year. Now well into his 80's, Smokey shows no signs of slowing down. His show resurrects many great old songs that bring back fond memories to his audience. This man is a legendary performer here in the northeast.
Junior Sisk and Ramblers Choice........Thursday

We are very proud to welcome back the IBMA Male Vocalist Of The Year, Junior Sisk and his fine group Rambler's Choice. Junior's bluegrass career continues to soar since his last appearance here a couple of years ago. When it comes to traditional bluegrass singing, nobody can top Junior Sisk!
The Feinberg Brothers.........Thursday

Rourke and Patrick Feinberg are no strangers to the Pickin' In The Pasture stage. They performed here as young boys and have developed a band that plays real bluegrass music at a professional level. They perform great renditions of classics done originally by folks like The Osbourne Brothers, Larry Sparks, Jimmy Martin, Flatt and Scruggs, and Bill Monroe. The future of bluegrass music is in good hands.
The Jesse Alexander Band.............Thursday, Friday, and Saturday

The Jesse Alexander Band is the host band of Pickin' In The Pasture. Jesse first appeared on stage here when he was two years old with his friend Bob Paisley. He has since learned to play fiddle and mandolin and is also singing lead and harmony. He has been receiving a lot of help with his music from our many bluegrass friends. 16 year old Jesse has recorded three albums and will be appearing at numerous festivals and events in the east this year. Jesse's sidemen include his dad Andy Alexander on banjo, his mother, Susan Alexander on upright bass, and his good friend Luke Parsnow on guitar. In addition to playing on stage, Jesse looks forward to picking with other young people at the festival.
The Lonesome River Band.............Friday

The Lonesome River Band has just recently been booked to fill a vacancy left by James King. We are very excited to have this legendary band with us again at Pickin' In The Pasture. Their unique sound has spawned a generation of new bluegrass fans. The Lonesome River Band brings a level of excitement to the stage that few other groups are capable of. Come party with The Lonesome River Band on Friday, August 22nd at Pickin In The Pasture in the beautiful Finger Lakes. Tell your friends
Goldwing Express ............Friday

Mixing sounds of bluegrass, country and gospel with a lot of light-hearted comedy, this nationally acclaimed show band of three Native American brothers and their dear dad continually delight audiences with their varied entertainment. We have received many requests from Pickin' In The Pasture bluegrass fans to continue having this unique group back. This year they will perform on Friday.
Wally, Danny, and The Ryders..............Friday

After several years of traveling with Remington Ryde, Wally and Danny have retired from the road and are playing just a few fun dates for their own enjoyment. We are glad these fun guys chose to be with us in The Pasture but we aren't sure what to expect!
Danny Paisley and the Southern Grass.........Friday

Danny Paisley is a perennial favorite at Pickin' In The Pasture. Along with his father the late Bob Paisley, this band has been instrumental in making the event what it is today. This is probably the hardest driving band in the history of bluegrass music. Danny is considered by many to be the finest singer in the business. His young son Ryan has stepped up and is doing a great job on the mandolin. Danny and the boys have become family and always have a big time hanging out with their "pasture" friends. We welcome them back for the 17th straight year!
Lorraine Jordan and Carolina Road....Friday and Saturday

Lorraine and the boys will be back in the pasture for two days this year! Their new song "That's Kentucky" has been riding on top of the Bluegrass Today chart for several weeks. There is a great video featuring the song as well. The whole album is "killer". The band is also enjoying their endorsement deal with RayBan.
The Gentlemen Of Bluegrass............Friday and Saturday

The Gentlemen Of Bluegrass will bring you back to the early days of The Country Gentlemen. This fine group will cover some classics as well as some original material done in the style of the Country Gentlemen. We welcome them to their first performance in NY State.
Dale Ann Bradley........Saturday

We often get requests to feature a female vocalist as a headliner at Pickin' In The Pasture. This year we are bringing back the best! Dale Anne Bradley has been named IBMA Female Vocalist three times and you will see why when she takes the stage at Pickin' In The Pasture. As an added bonus, she will be bringing along outstanding male vocalist, Steve Gulley and dobro master, Phil Leadbetter.
Larry Efaw and the Bluegrass Mountaineers......... Saturday

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. Check out his album "She Left Me Standing On The Mountain" and you will see what I mean.
The Spinney Brothers....................Saturday

The Spinney Brothers continue to create a lot of buzz in the bluegrass world after their nomination for IBMA emerging artist. People from the Canadian maritimes to the west coast of the USA are falling in love with their wonderful brother duets. We are happy to have them back to Pickin' In The Pasture.
Higher Mountain......Sunday Morning

On Sunday Morning Reverend Christine Kesterson will conduct a church service. The service will feature the bluegrass gospel music of Higher Mountain Bluegrass. You are invited to attend before traveling home.
