National Pike Pickers

June 21st @4pm

The National Pike Pickers will be playing at the Wheeling Arts Fest on Saturday, June 21st at 4:00pm.

The National Pike Pickers are: 
  • John Angius, Guitar
  • Dave Visnic, Fiddle
  • Jim Simpson, Mandolin
  • Jeff Strautmann, Doghouse Bass
Former Short Crick Flatpickers, John, Dave and Jeff have performed together in the Wheeling, W.Va. area for over 30 years. In 2011, the three joined with Jim Simpson, who has performed in several Philadelphia area bands and recently in the local favorite The Cabin Fever Band. 

The Pickers bring a traditional bluegrass style mixed with a few surprises to the Greater Ohio Valley.  Their fresh sets include songs by as diverse a group of writers and performers as the Bee Gees and John Prine,  Flatt and Scruggs and Johnny Cash.  And Bill Cheatham, Big Scioty, The Orange Blossom Special and Ragtime Annie are represented in new arrangements, too.  The National Pike Pickers are  for audiences that ask more of their bluegrass.
