The Kit Hillbillies
All the way from Calstock, we present Cornwall’s most entertaining bluegrass band. Old-timey and good-timey, with rousing vocal harmonies that smuggle in some darkly humourous local references.
Their music has been described as the sound of Woody Guthrie chasing Earl Scruggs in a stolen hay lorry. A simpler summary came from The Guardian journalist Tim Dowling: "The Kit Hillbillies: Excellent. See them soon."
Instrumental tasting notes: Banjo, fiddle, mandolin, guitar, double bass. Vigorous, expressive & unvarnished, with a crisp percussive finish. Think Betty Stogs rather than Harvey's Bristol Cream.
