Pickathon is turning 15

As we happily move into the early planning phases for next years festival, we wanted to point out that 2013 will mark the next significant milestone for the Pickathon community… we’re turning 15.

In festival age – it is an eternity. We’ve traveled through time together – a decade and a half – from toddler to teenager, and all points in between. Think about it…. before iTunes, smartphones, facebook, countless other festivals and cultural staples – there was Pickathon.

We feel that there is no better time to reflect, and look forward to taking the next 10 months in being able to share with you the rich history and magical moments from Pickathons’ past.

This first moment, captured by Tim LaBarge at Pendarvis Farm in 2006, is the memorable Galaxy Barn free-for-all with The Wilders, Darol Anger, Trevor & Travis Stuart, and of course Martha Scanlan. This show has gone down in the Pickathon history books as the first real ‘barn burner’ and has yet to be repeated.

Do you have memories to share?

Want to suggest a particular moment from the archives?

Let us know and we’ll do our best to share.
