Devil Goat Family String Band

$12.50 presale, $15 at the door

Moonshine Coalition was formed in Melbourne, Australia in early 2015, Max Lees playing slide resonator guitar and Annie Dixon on 5-string banjo. Inspired by old time country blues music and the more modern sounds of Gillian Welch and David Rawlings, the duo performs an intoxicating blend of blues roots and folk/country music. They have a strong focus on vocal harmony and their original songs paint vivid stories with heartfelt emotions and have received enthusiastic responses from audiences who love their energy and passion.

Devil Goat Family String Band are a five piece band who play high-energy bluegrass and fiddle tunes like they've never gone out of style. Their contemporary arrangements of traditional tunes utilize the twin fiddles of Kate Conner and Sophia Dunn, banjo of Gus Macmillan (Blue Grassy Knoll), Guitar of Luke Byrnes and Double Bass of Fran Evans. They traverse the old timey and new-grass traditions, and generate a live energy that is truly infectious to music-lovers of all generations
