The holidays are over but not for traveling musicians, apparently. There are practically zero touring bands coming to Boise. Fortunately local favorites Jonathan Warren and the Billy Goats will fill the void with performances at Grainey's on Friday, Jan. 6-Saturday, Jan. 7. And there's no better way to let go of holiday stress than with a night of homegrown bluegrass music, or as the band calls it: "progressive psychobilly folk grass."
The Billy Goats have churned out feel-good, old-timey jams since 2007, when Warren moved to Boise from Knoxville, Tenn. Since then the band has grown into a five-piece and developed an impressive repertoire of bluegrass originals and cover songs.
With Warren's gritty voice and help from a talented cast of musicians, The Billy Goats have developed a reputation as one of the most soulful, dance-inducing folk acts in town.[ Video is no longer available. ]
