An all-star interstate musical collaboration, The Wilson Pickers are better known as Queenslanders Danny Widdicombe, Ben Salter, Andrew Morris, and Victorians Sime Nugent and John Bedggood.
The Wilson Pickers formed after a crazy idea of uniting some Queenslanders with some Victorians in the vague hope of inventing a bluegrass-style band. The Wilson Pickers feature five great and individual singers/songwriters, who all embrace the spiritual feeling one gets when singing in harmony.
The band creates an earthy energy by using purely organic stringed and reeded instruments. The Australian-born lads dare not take on bluegrass traditionalists of old but instead are aiming to craft their own unique take on the bluegrass configuration of instruments and ideas.
As individuals, the five members of The Wilson Pickers are known as rising stars in the music industry. As an ensemble they have harnessed the strengths of all members to form a stellar ensemble to look out for.
