Bluegrass keeps strumming along

With roots dating back to the 1930s, it is the evolution of bluegrass that keeps Terry Murphy of The Cherry Pickers carrying a tune. For three years, Murphy, John Rood Lewis, Pete Evans, Ken Stillman, and Karen Stillman, have toured mostly around Door County playing their blend of bluegrass, Americana, and roots rock styles. Like any genre, Murphy says bluegrass has changed over time because of the melting pot of influences that music, in general, has become.

The Cherry Pickers are the local entry in June’s Sol Grass Festival on Washington Island. The musical group also has a gig in Baileys Harbor on their schedule for March.
