ABOUT THE HOMESTEAD PICKERS: The Homestead Pickers from Silver Dollar City in Branson, Missouri, are a very special collection of four seasoned performers, musicians, comedians, actors, storytellers, and composers with many years of experience entertaining audiences both in Branson, Missouri and around the United States as well as tours of Ireland. Their performing home is the McHaffie Homestead cabin built in 1843 and located on the main street of Silver Dollar City. Their eclectic blend of fiddle, banjo, guitar, hammered dulcimer, and unique vocals depict the early days of American music, bluegrass, gospel, and even some Irish tunes with humor unmatched by any other combination. They have a dozen or more CD releases as well as a 2-CD, 36-song Homeschooler’s Folksong Collection which includes a 68 page lyric booklet of a study of the origins of American music and two volumes of DVD performances, all offered on their website. They’ve performed for governors, senators, preachers, and presidents. The Homestead Pickers have thrilled millions over the years with their antics and top-notch musicianship and they continue to be the highest rated attraction at Silver Dollar City
