The Hillbilly Goats

Kick yer shoes off, put yer hoe-down & hang on to yer britches! “The Hillbilly Goats are having a hell of a time raising hell“, remarks Trevor J. Leeden in Rhythms magazine, Nov 2013, and that’s just what Golden Guitar Finalists, the Hillbilly Goats have been doing all over the nation.
With their undeniable passion for Mountain Music, the instruments and the harmonies, 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, 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. Their album reviews in the Weekend Australian and several music magazines not only rave about their recordings, but their stage presence has been labelled “more driving and energetic than the less traditional shows seen on main stages of Australian country festivals.” (Alex Turnbull, Capital News).
The band members are never satisfied with their own instruments and continually swap over and change positions on stage.
With 2 nominations for Bluegrass Recording of the Year in the Golden Guitar Awards, the album has been highly successful and further stamps the musical twist on traditional songs The Hillbilly Goats are renowned for.
So, if you’re still a Goat Virgin and haven’t seen the Hillbilly Goats yet, check them out and see what all the fuss is about. They sure know how to Raise A Ruckus and you are guaranteed to be entertained – OLD TIME STYLE!
