Back at Rockland
this Saturday!

We're back in the northeast this weekend after enjoying some boat rides, long drives across the state of Florida, and even a painful encounter with a sea urchin. We'll be bringing some of our heart breaks to the Rockland Conservatory of Music on Saturday with some newer tunes, a few country classics, and maybe even a banjo tune (what/eeek/errmagawd)!

If you haven't been to this music conservatory before, its a wonderful listening room filled with avid listeners and music lovers. It's a short trip from NYC and will include 90 minutes of music by the city pickers. Show starts at 7pm.

Past Shows:
Florida Tour

A few weeks back we headed down to Florida to play a few shows and soak in the sun. We had a wonderful time hanging with new and old friends, and are counting the days till we get to go back!
Fortunately, the Indian River Arts & Concerts series was kind enough to record our performance and throughout the summer we will be publishing songs from that evening. To stay updated, make sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel, and you'll be notified every time a new one comes out!

To start things off, our first video is a recording of our song I'll Be Cryin', inspired by the Buck Owens tune Cryin' Time. It's a new favorite of mine and hopefully yours too. Check it out on YouTube, and keep your ears to ground for future videos!
I'll Be Cryin' performed as part of the Indian River Arts & Concerts series

Cole Quest and The City Pickers

are a group of New York City musicians connected by friendship and a love of bluegrass. Cole Quest, grandson of the folk icon Woody Guthrie, has brought together a collection of eclectic pickers who have gained recognition on the local scene. Performing both Quest's original tunes as well as traditional favorites, The City Pickers bring their special brand of high-spirited talent to the stage, with up-beat, knee slapping energy and a high lonesome sound that'll leave you wanting more.

After recording at NYC's renowned Magic Shop studio, by Grammy award winning producer Steve Rosenthal, they released their debut album in late July. Having shared bills with acts such as as Sierra Hull, Sarah Jaroz, Billy Strings & Don Julin, The Brothers Comatose, The Lil Smokies, Whiskey Shivers, Old Salt Union, The Lonely Heartstring Band, Willie Watson, Blind Boy Paxton and Michael Daves, you can catch them playing all over the northeast region.

"What a crack team of pickers and voices you have put together. Great dobro playing, world class harmonica...skies the limit when you get a band as good as this."  - Ketch Secor / Old Crow Medicine Show

"You’ve got to see this band live! Their catchy playing and endearing personal dynamic will make you sit up & listen, tap your toes (maybe even get up and dance), and bring a big grin to your face. They make great old fashioned good time music in a modern and highly accessible way. And they just keep getting better and better!" - Maggi Landau / 
Artistic Director for Roots Music, Caramoor Center for Music and the Arts
