We've teamed up with the good people at Pickathon to present a season's worth of archival — and incredible — videos from the Pacific Northwest festival's Lucky Barn Series. Tune in every fourth Tuesday of the month to catch a new clip.
For the second installment of Live at Lucky Barn from Pickathon 2015, Billy Strings and Don Julin team up to play the hell out of "Meet Me at the Creek." The two spend a good chunk of the eight-minute performance trading licks. After the tune, Strings talks about how he started out playing bluegrass as a kid, but then he got an electric guitar when he was 11 or 12. "I had played bluegrass all my life and I really wanted to play with people my age, so I started playing with friends and people from my school," Strings says, adding, "and they were playing heavy metal and really heavy stuff." Eventually, though he dug back into his roots.
Pickathon comes back to the Pendarvis Farm in Happy Valley, Oregon from August 5-7, 2016. Click here for more, and stay tuned for an exciting season of Lucky Barn videos.
