A popular East Kootenay band is bringing its alternative folk sound to Vernon.
The Good Ol’ Goats will be at Record City Collectables Friday.
“The Goats aren’t afraid to be a little tongue-in-cheek when it comes to both their music and their aesthetic. From their rickety-ol band name to their antiquated song titles and subject matter, the Goats clearly have a fascination with the old, the mystical, the expired,” said Eli Geddis, with the Vurb in Nelson.
The Goats consist of Nolan Ackert on banjo, guitar and lead vocals, Clayton Parsons on guitar, dobro, banjo and backup vocals, Theo Moore on bass and back-up vocals, Joelle Winkel on auxiliary percussion and back-up vocals, Danica Martin on trumpet, piano and back-up vocals, and Julian Bueckert on the drums.
They won second place in the 2013 CBC Searchlight Contest and they were the 2013 artist of the year at the Kootenay Music Awards.
The Good Ol’ Goats take to the stage Friday at Record City Collectables, 2909 30th Ave. at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $10 and available at the door.
