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. First formed in 2005, this most recent new line up builds on the success and recognition they developed in the noughties, when they released their highly acclaimed CD Fate of a Bachelor (available on iTunes). They have become favorites at festivals such as the Woodford Folk Festival, featured on ABC Radio as well performing everywhere from pubs, parties, corporate events, house concerts, weddings, bush dances, school fetes and bingo nights.
