What's coming up at Mountain Pickers

Heading 2

Tuesday - 8th November

Smith, Allen & Peterson

Beverly SmithKellie Allen, and Pete Peterson, award-winning players of

Old-Time Music, have combined their talents to form Smith Allen Peterson,

aka SAP. Beverly (fiddle, guitar, mandolin), Kellie (guitar, bass, mandolin)

Pete (banjo, guitar, autoharp).

This power-house old-time trio has it all: hot fiddling and banjo-picking,

driving guitar backup, with thrilling vocal harmonies on the old songs.

And on new songs, too! Beverly writes compelling songs.

SAP sings them in three-part harmony. Also: Carter Family songs, Charlie Poole songs (Pete owns one of Charlie Poole’s banjos!), and favorite and obscure

early country and old-time songs.

Instrumental chops? They have them, and ribbons to prove it. Icing on the cake? The trio is sometimes joined by Victoria’s best, Ian Alexander, who works clawhammer banjo magic. This old-time supergroup will rock your world!
