Welcome to Pickathon's 2016 Spring Season. Each week, the rustically set, Portland-area festival is running an ambitious program of four new episodes. Through twelve individual channels of content, you can experience this one-of-a-kind festival in the most intimate of ways... you'll go, On The Farm, up to The Pumphouse, across to The Slab, out to The Woods Stage, into The Galaxy Barn, and to so many other unique locations where the magic of Pickathon happens.

KEXP is proud to take part in this series. On every fourth week of each month, we present the Logging Road Sessions, featuring twelve exclusive performances captured by the KEXP crew deep in the woods of the festival grounds. The six episodes we featured in the Fall Season include Edna Vasquez, Fruit Bats, Happyness, Sam Amidon, Ty Segall & Cory Hanson and Langhorne Slim. This Spring Season, so far we've featured JD McPherson, Rodrigo Amarante, Wolf People, and Kevin Morby.

This month, we present seminal country-blues guitarist Little Freddie King, who made a name for himself in the juke joints of New Orleans back in the 60's and is a living legend today. Watch this exclusive performance, recorded by KEXP at Pickathon, and go "Walking With Freddie":
