The Pigs in Concert
The family that plays together, stays together... and in the nutty world of The Pigs, family (and beer, and bluegrass) is all that matters... and did I mention… you’re family too. In these troubling times you can count on The Pigs... They have not blurred their backgrounds, stockpiled dunny paper or learned anything remotely.
T-Bone, Stretch, Cousin Shamus, Cousin Bert & Cousin Montz last name PIG, like to have fun and their music speaks to that… but also pokes much deeper... life, love, heartache, Robot Goats even. Expect to be shocked by their dress & hear their many hits – even that one about Moisturiser. Not sure yet? Ask a friend or look ‘em up. www.thepigs.com.au
More about The Pigs:
In fifteen years on the road, the Pigs have wowed audiences at festivals all over Australia & Europe. They’ve released five albums and come to be known as the band that has made songs by Beyonce, Powderfinger, Farn-sy, INXS, Skyhooks, and even Kanye bluegrassy – just as they were meant to be – but its their originals that they’re remembered most for.. their most popular song on Spotify is the hilariously quirky original, “Macho Moisturiser” – a song that’s become an unlikely sing-a-long classic at a Pigs concert.
"...the Hillbilly Goats exhibit genuine passion and no lack of expertise or energy in their mission to present a taste of old-time Appalachian folk to Australian audiences....driving fiddle and plonking banjo in tandem provide more conventional impetus. Elsewhere, double bass and harmonica in conjunction with a variety of percussive devices (clogging, washboard, bones and jew's harp) help maintain momentum. Tight four-part harmony singing, with alternating male and female emphasis, adorns most tracks." - Tony Hillier, The AUSTRALIAN - Aug ‘13
Festival favourites, Australian Folk Band of the Year (2022), Golden Fiddle Recipients (2020) and 4 time “Bluegrass” Golden Guitar finalists, the Hillbilly Goats, exude an undeniable passion for mountain music, the instruments and the harmonies. Their mission is to strip back the layers of modern music and transport you on a journey that began centuries ago when the immigrants first settled in the Appalachian Mountains of America. These guys aren’t just a band – “they’re a show” and “Keeping it Real” is their motto!
