Album Notes
Straight out of the heart of the roots music revolution and into the minds of the masses comes the third release in the series from the Pickathon music festival, Pickathon 2002.

Rarely does such a diverse collection of pioneering musicians (including Kevin Burke, Laurie Lewis, Danny Barnes, Tony Furtado, Dirk Powell, Mark Graham, Terry robb, and Tom Sauber) assemble at a single music festival. Pickathon 2002 captures this piece of history, and makes it possible for all to share the wealth of this rich musical experience.

The Oregonian A&E says the following about Pickathon 2002:

"Just Like the occasion it documents, "2002 Pickathon" has a little bit of something for everyone. There are moments of jaw-dropping virtuosity (Sam Hill's take on a Jimmy Rodgers composition "Blue Yodel #4," which includes a lung shattering note held by singer Pat Kramer); passages of stunning emotional gravity (the twisted harmony vocals of Casey Neill and Little Sue on "Chinquapin"); good-time party tunes (Dirk Powell, Courtney Granger, and Friends' traditional "The Waltz of the Grand Road," which evokes the spirit of every Bourbon Street dive that ever served a drink in a plastic go-cup); and the sort of spirited eccentricity you might expect in such an eclectic setting (Danny Barnes' "Delilah," another in his catalog of Southern-fried tales from the beyond).

The Pickathon music festival is quickly moving into the national limelight for helping keep the pulse of the roots music scene alive, and Pickathon 2002 brings this magic in living color right to the listener.

The Pickathon is entirely a grass roots musician driven effort, and all profits from this record go to Portland community radio (KBOO - 90.7), which is one of the main media outlets that keeps roots music alive in the Northwest.
