The Cherry Pickers

South Australia

For almost two decades The Cherry Pickers have been wandering their own musical path, fusing modern and traditional bluegrass and acoustic music into a sound that is both unique and rooted in tradition. Along the way, they have developed a body of original songs that explore love, loss, humour, and the soul of bluegrass. They also continue to refine classic standards, while uncovering a few newer tunes along the way that reveal a secret side. The Cherry Pickers features fiddle, banjo, mandolin, upright bass, guitar and dobro, and deliver beautifully crafted vocal harmonies. Their love for bluegrass, folk and acoustic music shines through in every performance. They have appeared on various festival line-ups across Australia, as well as in 2016 performing in Nashville, Tennessee. The Cherry Pickers most recent album is ‘Hand Picked’, a collection of Australian songs uncovered in bluegrass. They are set to release a live album in 2023.
