The Pickin' Porch Show is a weekly two-hour Bluegrass and Old-time music show hosted by "Your Bluegrass Buddy", Tim White.

These wonderful performances feature the very best singers, musicians, and groups to be found anywhere, and most of them hail from right here in the Country Music Birthplace!

The mission of the Pickin' Porch is to honor the region's deep musical roots and to promote Bluegrass and Old-Time music here and around the world.

We invite you to join us every Monday night at 7:00 PM.

All Pickin' Porch shows are performed live at Foundation Event Facility, 620 State Street in Bristol, Tennessee.

Admission is free, but an optional donation of $5 per person is greatly appreciated.
