DEVIL GOAT STRING BAND
August 6 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm
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. They are a family of five been-around-the-block musicians whose disparate musical pedigrees have interbred in an orgy of string band collaboration and celebration. 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 original 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 covers to keep the Good Ol’ Boys from reaching for their shotguns.
