The Homestead Pickers from Branson, MO
March 5, 3 p.m.
The Homested Pickers are a very special collection of four seasoned performers, musicians, comedians, actors, storytellers, and composers with many years of experience entertaining audiences both in Branson, Missouri and around the United States as well as tours of the British Isles. Their performing home is the McHaffie Homestead cabin built in 1843 and located on the main street of Silver Dollar City. Their eclectic blend of fiddle, banjo, guitar, hammered dulcimer, and unique vocals depict the early days of American music, bluegrass and gospel with humor unmatched by any other combination. They have a dozen or more CD releases as well as a 36-song Homeschooler's Folksong Collection which includes two CDs as well as a 68 page lyric booklet of a study of the origins of American music all offered on their website. They've performed for from preachers to politicians, but more importantly the Pickers have thrilled millions over the years with their antics and top-notch musicianship and they continue to be the highest rated attraction at Silver Dollar City
