Jonathan Warren and the Billy Goats Arrive This Weekend!
by Sam Moon-Wainwright
Indie band Jonathan Warren and the Billy Goats are coming to Club 66 in Ashland for some fall folk music entertainment! The three-man band feature plays an impressive seven-plus instruments, including cello, banjo, and upright bass. The Billy Goats are touring to promote their new album, released just this week, titled This Very Evening, and to raise awareness of their online Kickstarter campaign, aimed at funding the album.
The band’s members, Jonathan Warren, David Sather-Smith and Andrew Smith, come from various musical backgrounds, including folk, classical and jazz. When they met in Idaho, they formed a new, exciting sound which they describe as “progressive psychobilly folk grass”. The Billy Goats promise an evening of roaring folk and bluegrass inspired music, and a lively performance that they describe as “a raucous, rambunctious ride on a rusty wagon down a dusty road.” You can check them out and listen to selections from their previous albums at their website, www.jonathanwarrenmusic.com.
Jonathan Warren and the Billy Goats are performing next Saturday, Oct. 26th. The show begins at 9 p.m. at Club 66, located at 1951 Ashland St., and has a $5 cover charge. For more information on the event, call 541-450-2656.
