Pickin’ in the Pines is an award-winning bluegrass & acoustic music festival first held in 2006 and founded by Flagstaff Friends of Traditional Music (FFOTM) members in Flagstaff, Arizona. The festival honors the interests of the diverse membership of FFOTM, featuring the best traditional and contemporary bluegrass music, complemented by other styles of acoustic music and dance. Pickin’ in the Pines was voted “Best Festival” in 2017 & 2018 by readers of the Arizona Daily Sun.
Although bluegrass music is a primary focus of our festival, we also feature other forms of acoustic music such as old-time music, Celtic, gypsy jazz and more.
