Born the spring of 2014, The Pretty Little Goat Stringband is delivering an energetic, dynamic and fresh take on old-time music to Brevard and the greater WNC area. Josh Carter brings great chord work, rhythm and punchy lead mandolin lines along with his passionate voice. Owen Grooms brings a driving, plunky sound adding layers of sound and rhythm. Tim Fisher with his great improvisational ability jumps into any song right after learning it with great enthusiasm making it look so easy. Mallory Carter does a great deal of singing, both lead and harmony while adding a percussive layer with her talents on the washboard. And holding the whole thing together are the innovative, fresh, and very tasteful bass lines of JT Linville.
U.S. National Scottish Fiddle Champion Jamie Laval creates rapt audiences with his passionate performances of traditional music of Scotland, Ireland, Brittany and Quebec, blending an ancient art form with stunning virtuosity and contemporary flair that resonates with families, youth, seniors, and devotees of ethnic, jazz, and classical music. “One of North America’s finest practitioners of traditional Scottish music” (San Jose Mercury News), Jamie performed on Dave Matthews’ platinum album Some Devil and gave a private performance for Her Majesty the Queen. An evening concert experience with Jamie combines toe-tapping melodies, amusing and informative stories, foot percussion, and an innovative arrangement style to create a beautiful atmosphere of the Scottish Highlands.
