The Chilli Pickers To Play Southern Style

by | 23 Jun, 2024 | 0 comments

The Chilli Pickers will be playing live to air on Southern Style on Tuesday  July 2nd.

The Chilli Pickers are a seasoned 4 piece from Melbourne playing Folk, Appalachian and Bluegrass tunes.
The band features Jane McCracken on vocals and guitar, Kate Connor on fiddle and harmonies (Devil Goat Family String Band, Andy Baylor), Gus Macmillan on banjo(Blue Grassy Knoll and Devil Goat Family String Band) and Keith Urquhart on double bass. (extended bios next page)
The band has been playing music in the same pubs since the early 90’s, but not always in the same bands, or even the same genres. Now the stars have aligned, and these old musical mates have come together to create a band whose whole is greater than the sum of the parts.
United by the music of Doc Boggs, Ola Belle Reed, Gillian Welch, The Horseflies and Elizabeth LaPrelle. the intertwining of fiddle and banjo, haunting vocal harmonies, and lyrics that are both timeless and true, make this band mesmerising and energising in equal parts, like moonshine and mountain dew.

Jan Dale’s radio show, Southern Style, can also be streamed to your computer via the PBS website.
