Good Ol’ Goats return to Nelson

Cranbrook-based band is coming to Spiritbar on Saturday, January 17 for a night of alt-folk bluegrass.

The Good Ol’ Goats are a young band, just shy of four years old, but already they’ve established their reputation as one of the region’s finest alt-folk bluegrass bands.

The Goats will be returning to Nelson’s Spiritbar on Saturday, January 17 for a night they described on Facebook as full of “infectious rhythms, beautiful acoustic instrumentation, heartfelt melodies, five-piece vocal harmonies and clever lyrics that are unexpectedly mature, nuanced and just plain fun.”

The sextet is made up of Nolan Ackert on lead vocals, banjo and guitar; Clayton Parsons on guitar, banjo, dobro and vocals; Theo Moore on bass, guitar and backing vocals; Joelle Winkel on backing vocals and guitar; Julian Bueckert on drums; and Danica Martin on piano and trumpet and vocals.

Special guest to be announced.

Advanced tickets are $10 and are now available from the Hume Hotel. Tickets can be purchased at the door for $12.
