Slim Pickens is a blues and roots musician from theByronBay(Northern NSW) area. Slim is a very experienced performer with over 40 years in the music business. In the last 10 years he has played at some of this countries top music festivals (including the Byron Bay Bluesfest alongside many world renowned artists) as well as touring in Europe.
His “Happy Trails” CD went to #2 on The Australian Blues and Roots Charts and he has just released his 5th album “Pass It On” which is getting airplay right around Australia.
Slim has been performing at Glen Helen since 2008 and regards it as his favourite gig. His show takes us on a journey through the music of the 1930’s depression era. Songs of struggle and hard times but with a little humour thrown in to the mix. Martin Jones of Rhythms Magazine said in his review of Slim’s “Happy Trails” album ..”If this CD doesn’t make you smile, you could be beyond help.”
Slim also encourages participation from his audience and if you are here for one of his nights, you could very well end up being part of his Glen Helen Egg & Spoon Orchestra.
