AllisonA(Animaterra) Oldtime Musical Gatherings: What Were They Called? (32) RE: Oldtime Musical Gatherings: What Were They Called? 27 Jun 17


In southwestern NC (100 miles west of Asheville), I've heard folks call a musical gathering a "pick" or a "pickin' party."

Dear Husband showed up at one when he was first in that area, took out his guitar, proceeded to play finger-style. One of the old timers remarked, "No pick? What are you, a Communist?"

DH *thinks* he was joking...
