Upcoming ‘American Pickers’ episode focuses on renowned Savannah bluegrass musician

Wayne Jerrolds performs at the 43rd Savannah Bluegrass Festival on July 2.

Things often line up for a “great find” in “American Pickers,” the TV show that follows antique and collectible pickers Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz, who travel around the U.S. to buy or “pick” various items for resale, for clients, or for their personal collections.
Back in February the pickers were in Savannah, at the home of renowned fiddler and bluegrass musician Wayne Jerrolds, along with his grandson Clent Martin. It took nearly 12 hours with more than 30 crew members to pull the show together.
The episode entitled “Fiddles and Picks” is airing on the History Channel on Monday, July 19, at 8 p.m.
“The filming was real exciting. I open the door in the show. The show is about my granddad’s life and what he’s done for music, and how he’s passing the tradition down the generations to me,” said Martin.

    Having family in Tn. And to have spent the first few years there before moving away, your show captures the soft speaking, humble nature of most Tennessean’s of Wayne’s age. Thank you for sharing your encounters with a true southern gentleman. Made me home sick.
