Join us Saturday, May 18 for the Early Bird Pickin’ Panel during Thumbpicking Weekend in Mountain View, AR!

In a world of originals, Thom Bresh is truly an original. His quick wit and humor is only surpassed by his skill on guitar, which he comes by naturally. Thom’s father was the late Merle Travis, who we celebrate every May with concerts and workshops. Turns out, the apple may have never even fallen from the tree, with Thom.

Springfield, Missouri native Randy Buckner has helped revitalize the Thumbpicking tradition in the Ozarks and has been a regular performer and instructor during Thumbpicking Weekend since 2014. Randy’s skill and passion for the Thumbpicking style will be on full display.

Other guests include Dolye Dikes and Danny Dozier.
