WGB Presents: Pea Pickin’ Hearts
August 19, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Witty & personal, the Pea Pickin’ Hearts, combine the storytelling of traditional folk with over-the-top energy of rockabilly, the authentic harmony of bluegrass & the sexy swagger of western swing. Their quirky mashup of roots sounds pay homage to 1940s/50s Appalachia.
Rachel Gibson & Jon Ives are the ultimate collaborators, offering unique harmonies & smart lyrics. When not weaving an original tune, the Peas offer tributes to the artists that inspire them, from Rosemary Clooney & Tennessee Ernie Ford to Johnny & June. The truth of their turn-of-phrase isn’t always sweet –like the life about which it is written.
Every song is a quirky treat that creates connections between “the Peas” & their audiences. Named in tribute to TN Ernie Ford & the love they share for Tennessee, The Pea Pickin’ Hearts are celebrating the release of “Last Words” (2015), the upbeat follow up to their folk-inspired album, “Creekwood Crow” (2014) by touring the U.S. crashing-testing new songs! Don’t miss an opportunity to experience the Pea Pickin’ Hearts live!
