The Hot Pickin’ Party heats up in Lincoln
After these long, rainy and cold days, it’s hard to resist a band called the “Hot Pickin’ Party.” And there’s no reason you should. This bluegrass band will take the stage at Burnham Hall, 52 River Road, in Lincoln on Saturday, Nov. 10, at 7:30 p.m.
Guitarist Doug Perkins, bassist Mike Santosusso and dobro player Adam Frehm first appeared on the Vermont music scene over 20 years ago as the core members of the popular newgrass, jamband Smokin’ Grass. After Smokin’ Grass burnt out, Perkins, Santosusso and Frehm each performed with various artists in Vermont and New England before reuniting to form Hot Pickin’ Party.
The trio’s music celebrates heartfelt harmonies, dynamic musical interplay and a spirit of exploration of journeys old and new. At any Hot Pickin’ Party performance you’ll hear a mix of original songs, traditional bluegrass songs, familiar yet eclectic classic covers and the occasional completely improvised jam. A Hot Pickin’ Party show is hot and cool, fun and funny, and always a party.
Saturday’s show is part of the Burnham Music Series and costs $10 for adults; kids and teens are free. Refreshments will be served during intermission. For more information, call (802) 388-6863.
