The Pipi Pickers are Barry Torkington on guitar, Garry Bigwood on mandolin, guitar and vocals, Nat Torkington on 5 string banjo, and Jenine Abarbanel on double bass and vocals. Jenine’s strong leading vocals have been compared to Natalie Merchant and Gillian Welch. Nat Torkington is considered one of the best Scruggs-style 5-string banjo pickers in New Zealand, and his licks will blow your mind. Barry and Garry lay down a solid wall of luscious rhythm guitar as well as each picking mind-bending solos. In 2010, Garry picked up the mandolin adding another delicious layer of sound to the ensemble. Recently, Barry has been picking up his dobro more often and fans can look forward to hearing a bit of that steel slide sound very soon.
