Longleaf Pine Nuts, Swift Creek

When: Thu., June 18, 6 p.m. 2015

If it was easy to find free live bluegrass in this region of North Carolina before IBMA’s annual gathering became the smash event of downtown Raleigh, it’s now almost too easy, as most every free series gathers a few pickers around a microphone and lets ’em go. Pickin’ in the Plaza, which alternates Thursdays in City Plaza with the rock-oriented Oak City 7, has the best real estate. For this installment, they pair the rather professional and polished Swift Creek with the wondrously casual Longleaf Pine Nuts. That act of area veterans gives old-time, bluegrass and country the same credence, resulting in performances that are neither too strict nor standard. —Grayson Haver Currin
