Blind Corn Liquor Pickers
The Blind Corn Liquor Pickers, like the moonlight-brewed intoxicant for which they are named, play a variety of bluegrass whose origins are difficult to ascertain. As corn liquor flows through an old car radiator, old-time traditions mix with modern methods in ways that can be unsettling, inspiring, euphoric or blindness-inducing. It’s bluegrass that burns going down, warms your gut, and then hits your head like a thunderbolt of white lightning. Banjos, mandolins and fiddles mingle with drums and electric guitars and the soaring, emotive vocals of lead singer Beth Walker harness an Appalachian blues to make the stories in their songs really sing.
