CD Launch – Spotted Mallard

Devil Goat Family String Band are excited to announce the launch of their latest CD – PEACE, LOVE and GOATS at the Spotted Mallard on Saturday 8th September, 2pm-4pm.

The new album was recorded at Jumbunna in Gippsland by producer Greg Walker (Paul Kelly, CW Stoneking, Perch Creek et al). It contains 5 original tracks written for the CD and 7 covers of traditional tunes that have been a staple of their live set over the last 12 months. It was funded in part from prize money for winning the People’s Choice award for most popular band at the Sydney Road Street Party, 2018.

Devil Goat Family String Band are a Brunswick based five piece band who play high-energy bluegrass and fiddle tunes like it’s 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 lively energy that is truly infectious to music-lovers of all generations.

The band will be joined by special guests Charm of Finches, who themselves have just released an acclaimed new CD The Bridge.
