Started in 2009 as a side project for Andrew Morris, Danny Widdicombe, Sime Nugent, Ben Salter and John Bedggood, the Wilson Pickers have since gone on to receive an ARIA nomination for each of their albums, play major festivals throughout Australia and build a reputation for the very, very good time that is had by everyone at their live shows.
The Pickers play original folk and country songs using bluegrass instrumentation. They stand five men across the front of the stage and are renowned for their 5 part harmony singing and jovial attitude. Their shows are raucous, virtuosic, often spell binding and always fun. In 2016 they have received another ARIA nomination for their album “You Can’t Catch Fish From A Train”.
