The Wilson Pickers

“You Can’t Catch Fish From A Train” Album Launch at The Sound Lounge Oct 13 & The Triffid Oct 14.

Supported by Dana Gehrman

Recorded in the round at Church Farm Studios in Billinudgel, NSW over three days in February this year, the album returns The Wilson Pickers to the bluegrass instrumentation and five-part harmony singing that propelled this side project to centre stage in 2009.

Doors open from 7:30pm, show begins at 8:30pm

Tickets $20 online, or $25 at the door unless sold out.

Both their previous albums have been nominated for ARIA awards and the band are calling this release their best work yet.

Ben Salter, Sime Nugent, Andrew Morris, Danny Widdicombe and John Bedggood initially formed the fabled Wilson Pickers as a side project and soon built a reputation for their raucous, virtuosic and often spell binding live shows at festivals around the country. They recorded two studio albums – The Land Of The Powerful Owl (2009) and Shake It Down (2010).

You Can’t Catch Fish From a Train is out through ABC Music / Universal on August 26.
