NPR listed Black Twig Pickers' Rough Carpenters as one of its most-anticipated releases for 2013, which is a pretty good way to start a year. But the Appalachian old-time band, whose members come from Virginia and West Virginia, has also been keeping busy touring in and out of the U.S., as well as playing and calling dances, together and as solo artists. Black Twig Pickers play a free show at Jack of the Wood on Tuesday, May 21. 9 p.m. http://www.jackofthewood.com. Photo by Random Found Objects Photography
