The Black Twig Pickers
Based on both sides of the Virginia-West Virginia line, the Black Twig Pickers have kicked up a fiddle and banjo, guitar and washboard ruckus for over a decade. The band specializes in regional old-time tunes learned from master players and from studying archival and home recordings. For dances, the core trio usually adds bass, duo fiddle and calling.
