The Blurry Pickers

Raised in the hidden hills and hollers of Southern ON, Canada, the Blurry Pickers are a family of friends who formed a band around their mutual love of music.  Somewhere between where Jerry Garcia meets Bill Monroe, the Blurry Pickers have developed a sound that crosses borders but rests nowhere.  Lauded for their catchy melodies and songwriting, old-timey and soulful lyrics, their dynamic will pull you in and their songs will keep you there. 


The Blurry Pickers released their second album "Diary of a Grassman" in 2016. Bluegrass Canada Magazine, says of the album, "a treat to experience" and "an exciting new force on the Canadian Bluegrass scene."


They have shared the bill with Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson, Melvin Seals and JGB, Tom Constanten and Terrapin Flyer, George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic, Ekoostik Hookah, Rusted Root, Keller Williams and Larry Keel amongst others.  Their songs have have received international airplay and have been featured on the Grateful Dead Hour and SiriusXM's the Grateful Dead Channel.
