Festival favourites and Golden Guitar finalists, The Hillbilly Goats are bringing their mountain music and harmonies to The Imperial Hotel Eumundi on Saturday 25 May.

Trad folk on steroids with a splash of colour and a dash of difference - these Goats have forged their own path. 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, three-part harmonies and stories, The Hillbilly Goats take you on a journey of mountain music’s evolution into blues, country and bluegrass.

The band members continually swap over and change positions on stage – you won’t know where to look or who to watch! You'll see Goat Girl running through the crowd rattling the bones; Goat Boy playing three instruments at once (drums with his feet, banjo in hand and harmonica on a brace); while the Goat Buster has legs that kick all the way to the sky - whilst playing fiddle flat out!
