With their 12th annual Pickin’ in the Pines, the Flagstaff Friends of Traditional Music continue their mission to preserve and promote American folk music and bluegrass in Northern Arizona. Hosted in the well laid-out amphitheater at Fort Tuthill County Park, Pickin’ takes the standard festival in a field experience and elevates it — and the top-level bluegrass lineup combines to make the mid-September festival a great cap to the summer.
Lineup: Rhonda Vincent & The Rage, Tim O’Brien, The Drew Emmitt Band, Mountain Heart, Della Mae, Balsam Range, Town Mountain, Foghorn String Band, The Colton House Trio feat. Chris Brashear, Peter McLaughlin & Todd Phillips, Rapidgrass, The Lil’ Smokies, Burnett Family Bluegrass, The Ping Brothers, Mr. Mudd & Mr. Gold, Sugar & The Mint and more
