19 shows down, 1 show to go

We had a great time playing 5 shows in the past 4 days AND 19 shows in October so far.  We’ve just got one show left on HALLOWEEN at Tom & Earl’s Back Alley Grill.  We can’t believe how many great people we’ve met.  Just during our Sunday show at Back Alley Grill, we met people from… (continues below)

CRICKETS by the Pea Pickin’ Hearts ©2014

(Recorded live at the Pittsboro Roadhouse for the Tokyo Rosenthal Radio Program on Sept. 4, 2014)

This song is dedicated to every musician that ever played a sports bar where the stage is directly opposite of the big screen TV on game day. We feel your pain.  We’ve had our share of cancelled Saturday night shows due to football games.  (continues below)

You can download Crickets,
from our Creekwood Crow CD, TODAY on iTunes.

Recorded Live…

2014 October 15

(Recorded live at the Pittsboro Roadhouse for the Tokyo Rosenthal Radio Program on Sept. 4, 2014)

Jon & I are rarely apart–maybe 8 to 10 hours per week.  And, every time we see a story in the news about couples that die in short succession, we talk about the phenomenon of dying of a “broken heart”.  We can only imagine that the same will be our fate many years from now. (continues below)

But, Swoon & Swallow is really just a sweet love song, with a sea shanty feel, about lovers dying one just after the other–based on the traditional sailor’s tattoo imagery of the swallow being a metaphor for safe passage.  Although it IS about death, it is a sweet song of devotion that anticipates being reunited as opposed to mourning loss.

You can download Swallow & Swoon,
from our Creekwood Crow CD, TODAY on iTunes.

not out

We had a spectacular September.  This past week has included 5 shows in 4 days, and we couldn’t have had more fun.  We are biased, granted, but I think we have the BEST audiences.  We also have great shows coming up that range the full gamut from great indoor/outdoor dining like Tom & Earl’s Back Alley Grill to new venues like Open Chord Brewhouse and Dick’s Last Resort.

Check out all of our
Upcoming Dates!


We are proud to have Charlie Katt as our special guest at Open Chord on October 17th and tickled to have our littlest pea, Oscar, opening for us at The Bunk House in November.  September was super, but October’s gonna be out of this world.

Be sure to come hear us on the road!

 Tom & Earl's Back Alley Grill!we almost had
too much

At most shows, WE are the visitors. But tonight at Tom & Earl’s Back Alley Grill, we were fortunate to be playing to a house full of Gatlinburg visitors.  We were reminded WHY it is so much fun to play to tourists.

They are so happy-smiley
& excited to be on vacation. 


Requests tend to be humble and the response to PLAYING a request is always inappropriately exuberant.   Tonight’s show was no different, and we had so much fun.

Tom & Earl's Back Alley Grill!First, to the lady from Georgia (who looked surprisingly like Sarah Palin), thank you for having the extra glass of wine and staying through the last set.  Your smiling face was great to see out there in the audience.  And, I’m glad you were WALKING to the hotel. :)

Second, to the young woman that works three doors down from the stage, thanks for the compliments and loving music that was made many, many years before you were born.

Third (and most appreciatied), to the audience members that both requested and loudly applauded for original music, thank you thank you thank you.  We wish we could hire you to follow us to EVERY SHOW!

We’ll be back at  Tom & Earl’s Back Alley Grill
Friday, October 3rd from 7 to 10pm!

See you there!

Welcome… FALL!

NEW VIDEO coming…

2014 September 22

SIGHTS & sounds…

There is a lot of video out there of us.  But everyone watches the 2011 Hard Rock Cabin Fever performance in which you can’t really hear or see much.   (continues below)

Pea Pickin' Hearts screen shot by In Focus Studios on the Toyko Rosenthal Radio Program!

So, when we were asked to be guests on the Tokyo Rosenthal Radio Program in early September, we were happy to hear that In Focus Studios (Pittsboro, NC) would be filming the recording of the radio broadcast, per usual.  We are looking forward to edited versions of two of the songs off our new Creekwood Crow CD, Swallow & Swoon AND Crickets from In Focus!

While we have high hopes to film artistic videos for Magpie Mary  and Grouse & Grackle soon, we are also excited to have a little CURRENT documented performance video to release.  Stay tuned!  We’ll have something in the upcoming weeks!

We always like to hearing from YOU.
