Join us at the club for a showcase of musicians all participating in the upcoming Picknbow Music Camp, a weekend of traditional music workshops & concerts in Durham (https://www.picknbow.com/). This showcase features three local performers & the Picknbow Camp founder!
Based in Pittsboro, singing has been her passion since childhood, and songwriting has become a way of personally expressing her views on life and love. Taylor’s sophomore self-titled album, produced by award-winning songwriter and guitarist Jon Shain, was released in May 2019.
Barry's songs are a much-needed monument to kindness & authenticity. A resident of Burlington & recipient of the 2017 NC Arts Council's Artist Fellowship, his 2019 album, 'Footsteps' is a collection of deeply considered & well-crafted songs, his material coming from the events of his own life, recasting sometimes painful passages into melody & words that help him sort through his feelings & connect with others.
Chris Spector (Midwest Record) describes Raleigh-baed Leah's music as, "singing and playing that can make people who make faces at the mention of folk music stop being so rude." Winner of several songwriting competitions, she moves smoothly between styles, dipping into Cole Porter territory, finger-style blues, and many other appreciations of old-time music’s drive & melodic simplicity.
Founder of Picknbow in 2011, Danny's musical roots spread deep and broad, a master flat-picking and finger-picking instrumentalist, he cut his musical teeth playing in rock, jazz, blues, bluegrass & country bands. In 1980, Gotham took Second Place in the prestigious National Finger-picking Guitar Championship in Winfield, KS. He has collaborated with the great folksinger Tom Paxton and original "Prairie Home Companion" music director, Peter Ostroushko. He also works as an extensive private musical teach and since 1974, has conducted numerous workshops in the US and Canada.
