The Pickup Cowboys are excited to try something new this year. Starting January 10, this Thursday, we’re starting a monthly residency at Muddy Creek Music Hall in Bethania, North Carolina. Of course, we are also playing tonight, Wednesday, at The Kraken. After a year of playing every Wednesday, The Kraken feels like home. We’d like to make Muddy Creek our home away from home.

Another first for us: we’re going to jail! (Okay, technically a first. We’ve never been to jail as a whole band before.) The Old County Jail in Statesville, North Carolina is now a performance space. You know I love a dark tale. And ANOTHER first for us: we are playing Wintergrass!  Will be on stage Friday and Saturday during this great Seattle-area Bluegrass and Americana festival in February.
