4:00 – 7:00 pm – PEA PICKIN’ HEARTS, at Talon Winery, Gordon Ln, Shelbyville

Talon Winery Logo

The Pea Pickin’ Hearts cast a spell with their quirky Americana mash-up of raucous country, rockabilly, folk & hillbilly sounds that pay homage to 1940s & 50s Appalachia. Lead singer Rachel Gibson & guitarist Jon Ives create unique harmonies that can only develop after years of listening–-one to the other. Their name is a sweet tribute to both Tennessee Ernie Ford’s famous line “bless your pea pickin’ heart” & the love they share for Tennessee.
