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 second video from the Spring season of the Lucky Barn Series features alt-folkster Sam Amidon who recruits the crowd to sing along with him on "Way Go Lily." Amidon comes by his folkiness honestly — from two parents who traveled the same path before him — and started playing fiddle when he was a three-year-old growing up in Vermont. Somewhere along the way, he wandered over to guitar and began reimagining classic songs with contemporary twists.
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.
Click here for more, and stay tuned for another wonderful season of Lucky Barn videos.
