With just two old guitars and a bucketful of aching harmony, THE GOAT ROPER RODEO BAND are preaching ‘Cosmic Country Blues’ like you never heard…
From a lonesome shack in the North Wales hills, Jim and Sam have honed their craft on a diet of country classics and down home roots records over the past decade, culminating in their own brand of trippy yet soulful acoustic blues.
It’s up, it’s down, it’s soft and loud, it’s dark and lonesome too, there’s hurt and shame and some mean old pain but there’s love in what they do!
There’s a hint of Gram, a sniff of Dylan and a twist of Waylon’s blues … Simply put, it’s exactly what it says on the tin.
The events of the past year have allowed the duo to concentrate on what matters... song.
Back in the saddle with an arsenal of new material and a desire to get back out on the open road, The Goat Roper Rodeo Band are ready to hit new heights in 2021/22!
“Amazing” - Bob Harris
“The Goat Ropers are the real deal ! I was blown away when I first saw them play and heard them harmonise, I wanted desperately to join in. If there’s any justice in this crazy world, they’ll soon be a household name and we’ll all be keeping it country with them” - Romeo Stodart - The Magic Numbers
“The Goat Roper Rodeo Band take a slightly psychedelic route to the finish line and include some serious footstompin’ rock ‘n’ roll along the way, Mix in a little gospel fire and a sprinkle of Gram and these boys ruled our last afternoon” - Spiral Earth
