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 Ty Segall & Cory Hanson, Langhorne Slim, Happyness, Fruitbats, JD McPherson, Sam Amidon and Edna Vazquez.

This month we present Brazilian, by way of LA, singer-songwriter Rodrigo Amarante alone in the woods on a sun-dappled morning, his voice still foggy from the night before and his mind still missing his family far away, as he sings "I'm Ready", a song about an even more poignant loss of a parent mourning a son killed at war. Watch this exclusive, and emotionally raw, performance with Rodrigo Amarante, recorded by KEXP at Pickathon, now:
