Fri May 19, 2023 6:00 pm
The Wood Pickers is a bluegrass and country band formed in 2017, based in central Ohio. The band brings to the fore the many years of musical experience of five great players from the Columbus, Ohio music scene. The band consists of Pete Remenyi, playing resophonic guitar (Dobro), harp and bass; Chas Williams on mandolin and fiddle; Tom Zinser playing guitar; Heidi White on bass; and Mike McGannon on banjo and lead guitar. Their three and four part vocal harmonies touch the high lonesome bluegrass sound, the rough and raw of old time music, and the tight sounds of country music. The band is an amalgam of several great bands including One Riot One Ranger, Death by Banjo, Grassahol, and A Likely Story. The musical tastes of The Wood Pickers bring together the various traditions of these bands to combine for a high energy mix of traditional bluegrass, modern bluegrass, country music, blues, and original material.
