The Pine Tree Pickers had so much fun last year that they are coming back again with a whole new repertoire! No two shows are the same! These fellas are some of Maine’s finest guitar pickers and will share the stage, singin’ & pickin’ in the round! Join us for an evening of guitar picking with guitar virtuosos Denny Breau, Sean Mencher, Peter Albert and Hugh Bowden.

Denny Breau

Denny is a triple threat: a consummate picker, evocative songwriter, and a singer with a voice that is warm and inviting but completely unpretentious— much like the singer himself, according to Lucky Clark, Kennebec Journal. Breau, whose family is music royalty in the state – his parents were country music singers who recorded for RCA Victor, his late brother Lenny, a renowned jazz guitarist; Denny himself started performing in his teens and was inducted into the Maine Country Music Hall of Fame in 2004. Denny Breau’s rhythmically flawless and dazzlingly clear style allows him to do amazing and stunning things with a six-string guitar. He mixes genres with ease — folk, Delta blues, country and jazz — “creating a totally accessible musical mélange that captivates as it entertains – Lucky Clark.
