Coming Soon: Handpicked with Under The Big Oak Tree

Under The Big Oak Tree's "Handpicked" concert poster

WHO’S PLAYING?  Under The Big Oak Tree (and guests) (St. Joseph, MO)

WHAT TO EXPECT?  Billed as “Autumn Spirits & Spice” this is a very unique, one of a kind concert will feature songs related to the fall. The event will be part of the First Saturdays celebration in Downtown St. Joseph, Missouri.

Under The Big Oak Tree are a local traditional bluegrass band. Their brilliant musicianship has impressed crowds over the last couple years while supporting their self-titled debut album and their latest release “Local Honey.” The 3 piece group features the sweet vocal stylings on Kristin Hamilton who also plays acoustic guitar, stand-up bass player Doug “Sluggo” Ward and multi-instrumentalist Simon Fink.

Special guest Lory Lacy is scheduled to help out the hosting group with a couple songs as well. She is a flutist and classically trained vocalist that should add a lot of variance to the performance.

Under The Big Oak Tree sounds like: traditional bluegrass, music you would hear on a Victrola, your bare feet in the July grass
