If Pickled Okra’s special brand of Americana music could be described, you might call it “old-school, porch-settin’, sing into a can-style bluegrass”. If you ask one of the members of the band they’ll tell you it's “ham and cheese grass”. Either way this group made up of two married couples (all characters in their own right), is undeniably charming and entertaining - not to mention pretty darn talented. Yes they know their bluegrass licks and aren’t afraid to show ‘em off, but their music is full of ideas borrowed from old time fiddle tunes, jazzy delta blues, pop, rock, reggae and funk as well, for a sound that is timeless yet modern in it's own quirky way. It’s kind of like stepping back in time, but with indoor plumbing.The Northwest Folklife Festival in Seattle, WA.

They have a special appeal, partly because they dole out “Pickled” versions of pop/rock tunes (by the likes of Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, and Bob Marley, to name a few). It’s also because of their playful antics, single mic choreography, dressing in early appalachian finery, and being, as one fan put it, “like raw milk - no BHT”. They’ve gained recognition in the Pacific Northwest and beyond for their performances, having appeared at such venues as....
Always eager to play, they also keep busy doing weddings, farm parties, corporate and city events, pubs, cafes, and farmer’s markets. They love to perform, and no matter how small or big the venue, they always make folks feel like they’re guests right there on the front porch of an old mountain cabin.

I ran across a really great document about music copyrights (according to ASCAP)
Who Should Read This Paper?
This paper is intended for a broad audience. Rather than addressing itself to those already versed in copyright law, this paper is designed to speak to those united by an interest in better understanding the role of music copyright in the digital age.
- The reader might be a young songwriter trying to promote his or her works without losing control over their use.
- The reader might be a journalist covering the convergence of technology and music - and looking for some basic information on the role of rights.
- The reader might be a legislator who is charged with developing laws for a shifting digital landscape.
- The reader might be a blogger about to leapinto podcasting, but unsure of the rules in terms of how music might be used.
