THE HILLBILLY GOATS
THE HILLBILLY GOATS exude an undeniable passion for mountain music, the instruments and the harmonies. Their mission is to strip back the layers of modern music and transport you on a journey that began centuries ago when the immigrants first settled in the Appalachian Mountains of America.
Their recordings paint a picture of traditional songs from 1710 through to the 1940’s with a high energy quirky edge. Featuring Banjo, Bones, Double Bass, Fiddle, Tap Dancing, 3 part Harmonies and more, there is a tale told of the history of Mountain Music’s evolution into Blues, Country & Bluegrass.
Their 3rd studio album, “Down Foggy Mountain”, has reached recent success with 2 CMAA Nominations. “Rabbit in a Log” was nominated for Bluegrass Song of the year 2016, and their second single, “Cumberland Gap” has been nominated in the same category for the 2017 Golden Guitars.
With their unique style and sound, The Hillbilly Goats are notorious for their stage presence being labelled “more driving and energetic than the less traditional shows seen on main stages of Australian country festivals.” (Alex Turnbull, Capital News). Whether it’s a sit down dinner show or a flat out festival set, the Hillbilly Goats are renowned for their entertainment value. Check out their video Below!
