As part of Kickin' Country 2017
Hillbilly Goats paint an Appalachian picture of traditional songs from 1710 through to the 1940’s with a high energy quirky edge. Featuring Banjo, Bones, Double Bass, Fiddle, Dobro, Harmonica, Percussion, Tap Dancing, 3 part Harmonies and more, there is a tale told of the history of Mountain Music’s evolution into Blues, Country & Bluegrass.
"...the Hillbilly Goats exhibit genuine passion and no lack of expertise or energy in their mission to present a taste of old-time Appalachian folk to Australian audiences....driving fiddle and plonking banjo in tandem provide more conventional impetus. Elsewhere, double bass and harmonica in conjunction with a variety of percussive devices (clogging, washboard, bones and jew's harp) help maintain momentum. Tight three-part harmony singing, with alternating male and female emphasis, adorns most tracks."
~ Tony Hillier, The AUSTRALIAN - Aug ‘13
“...this energetic band would create a fabulous, fun night out.... the musicianship is outstanding and the arrangements are well constructed using clean honest vocals with an emphasis on storytelling...”
~ Lonnie Martin, The Folk Rag (Nov 2011)
