It's the start of 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 Ty Segall & Cory Hanson, Langhorne Slim, Happyness, Fruitbats, Sam Amidon and Edna Vazquez.

We kick the Spring Season off with a special performance by JD McPherson. Gathered on stumps amid the forest green, the Okie roots rocker and his stellar band lit into a blazin' version of "Bossy", from his 2015 LP, Let the Good Times Roll, with such driving force you'd think the abandoned Logging Road at Pickathon was a high speed freight line. Watch this exclusive performance with JD McPherson, recorded by KEXP at Pickathon, now:
