Chicken Pickin’ Brunch w/ Pickxen

Event Navigation

Pickxen hails from the foothills of North Ga and brings with it a sense of humor and a passion for good simple music. Holding dear to the words spoken by American song-writer, Harold Arlan: “All you need is 3 chords and the truth”, Pickxen crafts songs that can melt your heart and then knock your socks off. The trio, made up of Dixie(Laura Monk) providing vocals, rhythm guitar and ukelele, Pixie (John Monk) on bass, and Micksy (Micheal Garvey) adding lead guitar and harmony vocals builds their music around Laura’s strong, yet sweet and soothing voice. The instruments are present and easily heard, but don’t step on the vocals.
Officially classified as Americana, their music skips over genres and embraces many sounds. Providing something for everyone has enabled them to play festivals, corporate events, house concerts and wineries through out the Southeast. Having released their first cd, Picks ’n Vittles in 2016 they are currently working on album #2 and they will be previewing some of those songs at the show at New Dawn.
“Laura’s voice reminds me of a young Nanci Griffith at times, but at other times Allison Krauss springs to mind and every now and then I think that I could be listening to a young sibling of Emmylou Harris….” review of Picks ’n Vittles cd by Rocking Magpie.
