The Wilson Pickers are hitting the road this spring to launch their third album, You Can’t Catch Fish From a Train.
Recorded in the round at Church Farm Studios in Billinudgel, NSW over three days in February this year, the album returns The Wilson Pickers to the bluegrass instrumentation and five-part harmony singing that propelled this side project to centre stage in 2009. Both their previous albums have been nominated for ARIA awards and the band are calling this release their best work yet.
The Pickers had a long pause while beloved band member, Danny Widdicombe underwent treatment for leukemia. But this album is more than a reunion for five of Australia’s finest singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalists. They had unfinished business to do. Nick DiDia (Bruce Springsteen, Rage Against The Machine) mixed and mastered the album. There are guest appearances by Bernard Fanning (Powderfinger) and Rod Coe (Slim Dusty) making this highly anticipated release a very well credentialed recording with a lot of heart.
