Two hot young pickers – Chelsea and Grace Constable

Bluegrass lovers know that hot young pickers show up just about everywhere you look. You see them at festivals all over the world, at fiddler’s conventions, and at amateur pickings in every imaginable setting. Some may just be precocious youngsters, but others will develop into the top artists of the next generation.

Here’s a pair of sisters from East Tennessee who can wear the strings off a guitar, 25 year old Chelsea Constable and her 13 year old sister, Grace. Both are very capable players, with Grace showing tremendous promise at such a tender age.

Here is a video they put together as Taylor Guitar endorsers. That’s Grace on the left and Chelsea on the right.


Chelsea says that they have been studying the instrument as a team for some time, chasing after their idol.

“Grace and I have been playing together for several years and love all styles of music. Bluegrass has always been very familiar to us in the region we live in (East Tennessee). We both started out early on Tony Rice licks/songs. I personally got to meet him, and it was a thrill to meet my favorite flat-picker of all time! Grace would love to meet him sometime, but we hear his health isn’t the best these days. Grace is currently taking online lessons from Bryan Sutton. We are both officially endorsed by Taylor Guitars.”
