WE FIRST CAME ACROSS THE HILLBILLY GOATS AT THE 2019 GROUNDWATER COUNTRY MUSIC FESTIVAL IN BROADBEACH, QUEENSLAND. THERE ON THE STAGE WERE THREE RATHER HILLBILLY LOOKING CHARACTERS AND WE THOUGHT, “OH YEAH, WHAT’S THIS GOING TO BE LIKE”, BUT WHEN THEY STARTED TO PLAY WE WERE IN RAPTURES. THE THREE WERE JUMPING ALL OVER THE STAGE PLAYING SOME OF THE FINEST HILLBILLY AND OLD TIMEY MUSIC YOU HAVE EVER HEARD. THE BAND IS LED BY BRYCE WEARNE (AFFECTIONATELY KNOWN AS GOAT BOY) AND HIS PARTNER MAHNEY WEARNE (AFFECTIONATELY KNOWN AS GOAT GIRL, WHAT ELSE?) THE REMAINDER OF THE BAND VARIES DEPENDING ON WHO IS AVAILABLE ON THE DAY BUT ALL ARE VERY ACCOMPLISHED MUSICIANS.

FURTHER INVESTIGATION SHOWED THAT BRYCE AND MAHNEY ARE TRUE TO THEIR MUSIC HAVING MADE SEVERAL TRIPS TO THE APPALACHIAN MOUNTAINS TO STUDY THE MUSIC AND WHILST THERE DISCOVERED MANY FORGOTTEN OLD TIMEY TUNES WHICH THEY BROUGHT BACK TO AUSTRALIA AND INCORPORATED INTO THEIR STAGE PERFORMANCES AND THEIR RECORDINGS. THE INSTRUMENTS THE BAND USES ARE STRAIGHT OUT OF THE APPALACHIANS, GUITAR, BANJO BANJITAR, RESONATOR, MANDOLIN, HARMONICA, JAW HARP, BONES, TIN WHISTLE, WASHBOARD, DOBRO AND THE LIST GOES ON AND ON. THE BAND HAVE WON MANY AWARDS INCLUDING THE 2020 GOLDEN FIDDLE AWARD AND HAVE BEEN FOUR TIMES GOLDEN GUITAR FINALISTS.

THIS IS THEIR FIRST ALBUM AND FEATURES SPECIAL GUEST BILL CHAMBERS (DEAD RINGER BAND) AND SOME OF THE FINEST HILLBILLY AND OLD TIMEY TUNES YOU WILL HEAR ANYWHERE IN AUSTRALIA. ALSO INCLUDED IN THE LINER NOTES IS AN ANECDOTE OF HOW EACH SONG CAME ABOUT. BRILLIANT ******
