At the Brighton Center of Performing Arts

Saturday, February 18th, 2017 – 7:30pm

It’s the 26th anniversary of the founding of The Raisin Pickers, the Manchester-based string band that’s cultivated a loyal following in with its deft mix of rustic Appalachian music, old time swing, bluegrass, and lately swamp driven Louisiana sounds.

Carol Wells Palms (bass, fiddle, vocals) a classically trained bass player who captures the heart of traditional music without letting go of high musical standards.

Mark Palms (banjo, guitar, accordion vocals) a self-taught musician who chases the heritage of traditional music by studying banjo knee-to-knee with old-time legends and gathering up field recordings from Louisiana to West Africa.

David Mosher (mandolin, fiddle, guitar, vocals), one of southeast Michigan’s most in-demand side man who carries a half-dozen instruments and follows his sense of aural aesthetics where they lead, be it writing songs, producing recordings or finding a bird in the woods by its call.

Billy King (electric guitar) his versatility as a multi-genre singer-songwriter is matched by his ability on a wide range of instruments. As an engaging performer Billy delivers a high-energy sound with lightness, dynamics, and sincerity.
