The Hale Mountain Pickers
Contact: Scott Sanfilippo
The Hale Mountain Pickers like to combine traditional bluegrass and old-time gospel with fun popular tunes while introducing some original music as well. They get feet stomping with the upbeat sounds of Bill Monroe, the Grateful Dead, and Old Crow Medicine Show, and throw in some traditional tunes for variety.
The Pickers, who pride themselves in fancy solos and smooth harmonies, start with longtime locals; guitarist and dobro player Ed Ransom (The Ransom Notes, The Buck Hill Ramblers) and bassist Larry Betit (Chris Harrington, The Night Caps, Higher Ground, Fred Lantz). Add to them guitarist John Carson (Funk in the Trunk), guitar & mandolin player Scott Sanfilippo and recorder & percussion player Sarah Sanfilippo who play locally as a duo. Scott also played with Ed as a Buck Hill Rambler. The recent addition of Marcel Holland on percussion and drums rounds out the sound. All together this group is sure to provide a full evening of entertainment.
