Some of the best traditional music in Morgantown has been played over the years by the Percival Hall Pickers, a group of musicians who get together weekly to play, learn tunes from each other, and exchange techniques. The Pickers have been major supporters of the GWMF since the beginning.
This audio sample is from a cassette made in 1990 that includes the following musicians: Phil Allender, bouzouki and whistles; Carroll Utt, Connie Banta, Harold Wright and Doug Garlow, guitar; Mark Crabtree, guitar and mandolin; Worley Gardner, mandolin and fiddle; Dave Harbst, mandolin; Mark Jerabek, mandolin; Jesse Joliffe, bass guitar; Patty Looman and Jill McCloy, hammered dulcimer; Craig Sims, fiddle; Larry Spisak, fiddle and mandolin; Nancy Utt, hammered dulcimer and mandolin; Ron Utt, guitar and fiddle.
