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, modern & quirky edge. Featuring Banjo, Bones, Mandolin, Double Bass, Guitars, Fiddle, Dobro, Harmonica, Percussion, Tap Dancing, 4 part Harmonies and more, there is a tale told of the history of Mountain Music’s evolution into Blues, Country, Bluegrass and Rock n Roll.

“ … this album consolidates the music and the flair of one of the best Aussie bands you will ever come across.... this is a celebration of life and music that will draw you in just as it did to thousands of fans at the recent Tamworth Festival… the Hillbilly Goats are a true treasure.” Jon Wolfe (Album review - Capital News Magazine, May 2014)

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 – you won’t know where to look or who to watch!

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!
