The FISHPICKERS, a 4 piece international band, whose members hail from Alaska, Texas, Bavaria Germany and most recently New Orleans. The band features a foot stomping, toe tapping, dance ‘til you drop blend of folk, honky-tonk and traditional music (Listen Now...).

The band plays traditional acoustic instruments: fiddle, mandolin, banjo, upright bass, and washboard (that would be the influence from New Orleans). The group is made up of fishermen and artists who work the fishing nets and stormy seas on the Alaska coast, working hard in the summers, playing hard in the winters. These musical artisans travel and play their very own unique style of music: Old Time Texas Fiddling and Old Time Banjo Rapping, currently playing with the Bavarian Double Bass and the New Orleans Creole Scrub Washboard!

In 2009, The FISHPICKERS were placed in the top 10 bands out of 350 bands from around the world at the 2009 International Buskers Festival in Ferrara, Italy. In the last 5 years they have played mostly in Southeast Alaska in the summers and in Bavaria, Germany, in the winters. Check our schedule for more info about our current movements...

If you want to have a good time, kick up your heels and swing your gal, don’t miss the FISHPICKERS, because they’re having a good time too.

Reviews

Just to let you know, the Fishpickers were absolutely amazing last night. We loved them, the customers loved them!
We asked them to come back and perform on Saturday so I think they’ll be back at least once.
