The Pea Pickin Hearts are a country music duo influenced by the Appalachian sounds of the 1940s and 50s that call Gatlinburg, TN their home. The name -Pea Pickin Hearts is a reference to none other than Tennessee Ernie Fords famous line -Bless your pea pickin’ heart. We have a lot of odd connections to Ernie. The name is a tribute to our history with each other (married 16 years) & our Tennessee home. The Pea Pickin Hearts are working on a new heavily folk-inspired CD,-Creekwood Crow for release in the Fall alongside a currently-untitled Moonshine EP.

Join us SATURDAY EVENING 6 TO 8 PM.
We hope this will be the first in a series of drum circles facilitated by international performing artist Pline Mounzeo of Congo. A little bit of learning rhythms from the Congo River Basin rain forest. A lot of playing them. Some spirituality mixed in as you wish. Rare in the U.S. but a favorite all over Africa – “they are all musical geniuses” (quote from a Kenyan who works in Global Health at Duke). Could be Carrboro’s own unique sound!
We’ll be playing mostly congas and ngomas (big drum of the rain forest region) but if you want, bring a djembe. Pline played for 5 years with a Senegalese group, so he’s OK with djembes!
