Talkin’ Family Archives with Cole Quest and The City Pickers & Anna Canoni

A group of New York City musicians connected by friendship and a love of bluegrass. Cole Quest, grandson of the folk icon Woody Guthrie, has brought together a collection of eclectic players who have gained recognition on the NYC scene. Performing both Quest’s original tunes as well as traditional favorites, The City Pickers bring their special brand of high-spirited talent to the stage, with up-beat, knee slapping energy and a high lonesome sound that’ll leave you wanting more.
Anna Canoni (granddaughter of Woody and Senior Operations Manager of Woody Guthrie Publications) will join the discussion.

Talkin’ Bromberg

David Bromberg (legendary performer and Arlo’s good friend through many years touring and playing music together)
His incredible journey spans five-and-a-half decades, and includes — but is not limited to — adventures with Bob Dylan, George Harrison, Jerry Garcia, and music and life lessons from seminal blues guitarist Reverend Gary Davis, who claimed the young Bromberg as a son. A musician’s musician, Bromberg’s mastery of several stringed instruments (guitar, fiddle, Dobro, mandolin), and multiple styles is legendary, leading Dr. John to declare him an American icon. In producing John Hartford’s hugely influential Aereo-Plain LP, Bromberg even co-invented a genre: Newgrass.
