Tyler Childers Streaming Concert from Pickathon Scheduled

The Pickathon Festival near Portland, OR has been helping to make the quarantine a bit more bearable over the last few months by tapping into its vast archive of high quality concert footage and streaming full sets from past years every day at 3 p.m. Central, 1 p.m. Pacific. Not just for entertainment purposes, the streams have generated tons of donations for the MusiCares COVID-19 Relief Fund which goes to the artists suffering worst from the pause in live music, with Spotify stepping up to match donations.

These aren’t your average live streams. The camera footage from multiple angles mixed with superb-quality audio puts you right in the crowd, and this will be the case on Friday, July 10th when the 2019 set from Tyler Childers on Pickathon’s Mt. Hood stage is streamed in its entirety, and for free. Saving Country Music has partnered with Pickathon to help promote selected streaming events, with Zephaniah OHora, The Quebe Sisters, Charley Crockett, and The Cactus Blossoms being some of the streams featured previously.

This Tyler Childers set came on the same weekend that he released his latest album Country Squire, which ended up going #1 on the Billboard Country Albums chart. He was in rare form over the weekend, with his set on Pickathon’s famed Woods Stage broadcasting the first week of the festival’s streaming events in early April.

Other Pickathon streaming concerts this week include John Craigie (who just released a new album) on Tuesday, the Preservation Hall Jazz Band on Wednesday, Breathe Owl Breathe on Thursday, Ibibio Sound Machine on Saturday, and Susto on Sunday.

The Tyler Childers Friday, July 10th set can be watched at 3 p.m. Central, 1 p.m. Pacific via the embedded player below, or on the Saving Country Music’s Facebook page, or on Pickathon’s YouTube channel. The stream is free, but donations are always welcome.

In other Tyler Childers news, he released a new animated video for his song “Country Squire.” You can see it here.
