The Jesse Alexander Band.....Thur, Sat

The Jesse Alexander Band is the host band of Pickin' In The Pasture. Jesse was 8 months old at the first festival. He has since learned to play fiddle, mandolin, guitar, and bass and is also singing lead and harmony. Jesse has recently been very well received at several nationally known bluegrass events across the country. Jesse's sidemen include his dad Andy Alexander on banjo, his mother, Susan Alexander playing upright bass, and lifetime friend, Luke Parsnow picking guitar. In addition to playing bluegrass, Jesse works as a winemaker at the prestigious Lamoreaux Landing Winery.
Blue Octane...Thur

Blue Octane is a high powered band out of Baltimore. We met them while playing in West Virginia last year and thought they would fit right in at The Pasture. You will enjoy their show!
Aaron Foster and Dreamcatcher...Thur, Fri

Aaron and this fine up and coming group of young people had their beginnings at East Tennessee State University. They have developed into a very professional band. Not only does this band kill it on stage, they also love mashing it in the campground. Make plans to hang out with Frosty and these fun folks!
The Kevin Prater Band.... Thurs.

Kevin has performed in The Pasture several times with James King as well as The Bluegrass Brothers. For the first time, Kevin will be fronting his own band here. Kevin's band has been with him for several years now and the group is known for their professional performances. We welcome "Waldo" back to Pickin' In The Pasture!!!
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.
The Farm Hands...Fri

This highly entertaining group comes from Nashville TN. They are not only excellent musicians and singers but also include good old fashioned values in their show. Don't miss this band, you are going to love them.
Carolina Blue...Fri

If you enjoy real traditional bluegrass the way it was played back in the '50s, you are going to love this retro group. These folks from the mountains of North Carolina are probably the hottest tradition band in the business. They are all extremely talented and deliver an amazing show.
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!
Bob Amos and Catamount Crossing....Sat

Bob and the band made their debut here in The Pasture last year. We received so much positive response to their performance that we just had to have them back. Their vocals will really impress you!
The US Navy Bluegrass Band.....Sat

Pickin' In The Pasture is extremely proud to be picked by the Department Of Defense as a venue for their Navy Bluegrass Band to perform at. Although it has been several years, this will be the third appearance of this fine group here. They always go over big. Some of the members have appeared here before in civilian bands and one, in fact, as a day lot car parker. So these talented sailors have some history here. Tell your veteran friends about this US military performance.
Jeff Scroggins and Colorado......Sat

These folks are no strangers at Pickin' In The Pasture. They are an international touring band and have played in 47 countries over the last few years. We are humbled that they still come home to The Pasture when they can. There is not a band in bluegrass music that has more talent than these people. Every one of them is a virtuoso and it shows. They will be closing out the Saturday night show with one of their legendary Pasture performances.
George's Pro Sound

The key to the world-class stage show at Pickin' In The Pasture is not just the lineup of great musicians. The sound reinforcement is perhaps even more important. Without good sound, not only does the audience suffer but musicians can't play and sing their best. George's Pro Sound brings the best of high end equipment, the finest sets of ears, and worked with us to acoustically treat the stage for optimum sound quality. Many professional musicians have commented to us that the sound was as good as it gets anywhere! George's Pro Sound has made our reputation at Pickin' In The Pasture for truly stellar sound.
