Quick Overview

The Black Twig Pickers take it to the dance floor on Whompyjawed, offering long-form, highly rhythmic and deeply layered takes on traditional fiddle and banjo music. The Twigs work up propulsive and mesmerizing versions of two side-long songs with banjos and fiddles, boards and bones in hand, the Black Twig Pickers dove into a living tradition of old-time music.


Banjos and fiddles, boards and bones in hand, The Black Twig Pickers dove into a living tradition of old-time music that surrounds their homes in Southwest Virginia and never looked back. Both scholars of the regional sounds and advocates of an ecstatic and highly personal approach to the music, the Twigs hold down local dance and bar gigs, play all manner of celebrations and every so often, hit the road. Along the way, Isak Howell, Nathan Bowles and Mike Gangloff kept company with some of underground Americaâ TMs heavyweights and haunted the doorsteps of Appalachian fiddle and banjo masters. Theyâ TMve played for the National Council for the Traditional Arts and for audiences overseas. And theyâ TMve put out a string of acclaimed albums, including 2008â TMs Hobo Handshake and last yearâ TMs Jack Rose & the Black Twig Pickers.
