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.
The first installment for the Spring season of the Lucky Barn Series comes from Jamaican guitarist Ernest Ranglin. Known for his work with reggae legends like Bob Marley and Jimmy Cliff, Ranglin steps out with his own band of hotshots — horns and all! — for "Congoman." At the 3:45 mark, he tosses his pick and starts … well, see for yourself.
Pickathon comes back to the Pendarvis Farm in Happy Valley, Oregon, from August 5-7, 2016. Recent additions to the festival lineup include Mac DeMarco, King Sunny Ade, Thao & the Get Down Stay Down, Joseph, Ry X, Cory Henry, Promised Land Sound, Town Mountain, Myke Bogan, Blossom, Caleb Klauder & Reeb Willms, Open Mike Eagle, and Chanti Darling. Tickets and the full lineup are available now.
