Ian Templeton

Back in 2015, frustrated with not finding the right band to play in, Ian decided to form his own and set about recruiting suitable members. Things came together surprising quickly and in early 2016 The Pop Pickers played their first gig. Ian plays a combination of lead and rhythm guitar with backing vocals.

Danny Rowlands

Danny joined The Pop Pickers in August 2023 as our new drummer. Danny has been playing the drums continuously in various bands since the mid sixties, covering a multitude of genres. Danny has extensive experience of the live music scene and will be a major asset to the band.
