    Singer Songwriters In The Round/Hosted by Pickxen

    8:00pm

    New Dawn Theater

    3650-A Satellite Blvd
    Duluth GA, 30096
       

    New Dawn Theater presents 3 stellar Americana acts to create a full nights entertainment.  Each songwriting team will perform and tell the stories behind their songs.  

    Pickxen: Dixie(Laura Monk), Pixie (John Monk) and Micksy(Michael Garvey) are the only Pickxen in the Universe. Heavily influenced by a steady diet of Carol King, Dolly Pardon, John Hiatt, Tom Waits and others from genres ranging from folk to old standards, and country to rock, they create songs that make you laugh, cry, reminisce, and ponder.

    Raven & Red: The band consists of Brittany Jones (vocals/violin) and Mitchell Lane (vocals/guitar), both graduates of the School of Music at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts, and Mitchell’s youngest brother, Cole King (vocals/mandolin).   Their innovative songwriting style is influenced by a combination of genres, including country, classical, Celtic, and American folk music. 

    Death Beard: Andy Leichty and Amanda Henke are the cutest Americana duo you will ever meet.

What’s He Building in There?

Well here we are, finding ourselves deep in the throes of the Holiday Season. Usually, the end of the year finds Pickxen slowing down a smidge in order to take some time to enjoy family and friends and give thanks for all the wonderful blessings bestowed on us this previous year. Where has the time gone, anyway, and didn't we ask that very same question about this time last year?? read more

Them Changes

Well friends, here we find ourselves in the dog days of Summer 2016 and things seem to be changing on a daily basis (save the 90 plus degree weather we seem to have been 'enjoying' nigh on these last 60 days, or so). You can find our cd 'Picks 'n Vittles' all over the internet - iTunes, Spotify, Amazon read more

The Music Goes Round and Round!

Wow friends!! Seems like it was forever ago since we last visited! But we all made it through Autumn and we made it through the holidays and we made it all the way through 2015 and woke up to greet 2016, right on time, like we knew she would be. read more

It’s Our Autumn Almanac!

Well hello, once again, friends and neighbors! Been quite awhile since we last visited, so let's see if we can't get y'all up to speed on all, (or at least most), things Pickxen. So get you some sweet tea and find a spot on the divan and get a load of our Autumn Almanac: read more

Don’t ‘cha Just Know It

Well, don't 'cha just know it! Tough times don't last - but tough people do. Our own Pixie P. has been going through some tough times with his poor old back but with the help of some supremely talented doctors and the Big Man upstairs, he has prevailed, the back issues are only a memory right now and this here little band is ready to move forward with an all out assault on the music business!! read more

Strange Things Happen Every Day

Well, it's a new month and Pickxen band finds itself with new challenges nearly everyday (and who doesn't like a new challenge, anyway?). Ole Pixie P. woke up a few days ago and found that his back wasn't interested in taking part in the daily rigors that keep an old bass player pounding away with the rhythm of life. read more
