PLAYLIST: Picker's Playhouse

 from the Judson & Moore Record Library

selected by Sullivan Davis

There's revelation in the study of tradition. One of the things that draws me into a deeper catalogue of American music is that there is so much complexity and distinction inside of genres. This playlist pulls from a few heads here at Judson & Moore who we're calling "Pickers" – an intentionally broad term for talented string player. Whether fretted or gutted, plucked or bowed, the mix of traditions in central to our understanding of Americana. Like our curiosity for quality whiskey, this playlist is a dive into the history of country blues, an overview old time, and the new places it's all going.
