Devil String Goat Band
June 19, 2016 @ 3:15 am - 4:00 am
There are plenty of rumours about inbred families and bluegrass, and The Devil Goat Family String Band are proud to have started a lot of them. Between them they’ve sired something that music purists may regard as a cross-eyed bow-legged step-cousin of bluegrass, but in truth their forbidden rendez vous has widened the genre gene-pool and created a hilly billy Frankenstien that is more powerful, stronger and multi-faceted than any of the pure-bred species they left back on the farm. A Devil Goat Family String Band gig consists of orginal tunes in the hillbilly and bluegrass ouvre that are not afraid to venture into the swampy badlands of Country, Folk, and Gypsy, and delivered in the style of a passionate high-energy string band. They also throw in some blistering bluegrass covers such to keep the Good Ol’ Boys from reaching for their shotguns. Rising from the ashes to perform their first gig since 2008 with a new line-up.
