New for 2021

Like many bands in the trying year of 2020, the COVID pandemic limited our playing dates severely. Still Pickin’ still managed to play a few private parties, all social distancing protocols in place.  We’re happy to say we are all vaccinated and back to form in 2021 and have already booked over 16 gigs!

Be sure to pick up our latest CD Hope Valley featuring Still Pickin’ originals and some bluegrass standards!  Along with our new CD, we also have awesome new T-shirts for sale!  Designed by Dan Sheridan of Sheridan Studios, these shirts are sure eye-catchers that express the joy of bluegrass music!  We suggest purchasing one of these T’s for every picker in the family!  Both CDs and T-shirts will be available at our spring performances.  Please check calendar section on this site for upcoming gigs!

Still Pickin is excited to announce we will be returning to the studio this May to record a new album of original material with some standards thrown in!  We’ll keep you posted on progress!

We continue to take bookings now for 2021, with popular dates filling up fast.  So if you are thinking of hiring us for your event, you might want to act quickly to get a hold of Jim at slimrdusty@gmail.com or (860) 933-3147.

Happy Pickin’,
The Still Pickin’ Band

Podunk Bluegrass Festival Returns This Year!

Like so many other events and concerts, The Annual Podunk Bluegrass Festival had to be cancelled in 2020 due to the pandemic. We are happy to know that this great showcase will be back this year! We are also please to announce that Still Pickin’ will be performing at Podunk on the Main Stage on August 15th! Headliners for the event (which runs from Thursday, Aug. 12- Sunday, Aug. 15th at the Goshen Fairgrounds) include Michael Cleveland and Flamekeeper, Po’ Ramblin Boys, Daryl Mosely Band, Billy Droze and many more!


 

Looking Back

Here’s a look at some past performances and posts:

Let this short compilation video of our performance at the Podunk Bluegrass Festival in Hebron, CT (August 10, 2018) be a reminder that warmer is not always better. It was a hot day. Really, really hot. Drippy foreheads, sweaty fingers, sweaty boots hot. In spite of the weather, we had a great time at Podunk, and hope Bluegrass lovers everywhere will make it out to the new site in Goshen, CT for Podunk 2019.
