Pickathon Adds Sierra Leone’s Refugee All Stars, Todd Snider, Bombino and More

A series of additional acts have been added to the 14th annual Pickathon, set to run August 3 – 5 at Pendarvis Farm on the outskirts of Portland, OR. Although Vieux Farka Touré and CW Stoneking have had to cancel their appearances, five new performers have been added to the bill including Sierra Leone’s Refugee All Stars, Bombino, Todd Snider, Casey MacGill, and The Cactus Blossoms. We’re personally excited by the addition of rising Tuareg guitarist Bombino, who stole the show at last month’s Austin Psych Fest.

These artists will join previously announced acts including Neko Case, Blitzen Trapper, Dr. Dog, The Barr Brothers, Vieux Farka Touré, White Denim, Abigail Washburn, The Wood Brothers, and many more. A full list of performers can be found below.

In addition to the festival’s six stages, Pickathon also hosts three unique beer, wine, and cider gardens. The Mountain View, Woods Stage, and Galaxy Barn Gardens will all serve a variety of either Widmer Brothers Brewing or Hopworks Urban Breweries’ finest suds, while all three will carry Evolution Red and White Wines and Wandering Aengus Ciders. All three gardens will feature unique handmade bars produced from locally harvested lumber and created by collaboration between Green Hammer and Urban Timberworks.
