About the event
“By any definition, these four musicians are producing some of the best and most creative roots music to be found anywhere... Although the music might be rooted in Western North Carolina, these talented musicians make it contemporary and cool and oh-so authentic.” -Blue Ridge Now
Pretty Little Goat formed in 2013 through their common love of the deep well of local tradition found in the mountains of Western North Carolina. Pretty Little Goat sees traditional music as a living art form; vibrant and evolving.
At the center of the group is the husband-and-wife team of Josh and Mallory Carter. After a youth marked by steady touring all around the world, they have now settled down on a farm in the country where they are raising three children, tending cows, and writing songs. The Carters have collaborated with fellow Goats Owen Grooms on banjo and JT Linville on bass, with Josh on mandolin and Mallory percussing on a washboard. Jackson Dulaney has been a powerful addition to the group, rounding out the sound with dobro playing as good as any of the best.
Their debut self-titled album released in 2016 presents unique interpretations of old-time songs and tunes along with original material.
The Goats' second album, "Let The Sun Shine In," is full of groovy original music that is "as close as we will ever be to our past while being as current as we need it to be" (Mike Ashworth, Steep Canyon Rangers)."
The most recent album has been turning heads everywhere. “As a collection, Big Storm is a triumph of what makes modern mountain music a favorite for those who want to build on tradition. It is a diverse album that combines both original and traditional storytelling with excellent musicality. It is both epic and personal, and the songs will stay with you”- Steve Wong
“A 2022 band [Pretty Little Goat] pushing out a sound unidentifiable by time...‘Fishers Hornpipe’ is a jig-ready reel, where the fiddle is solid in the drivers seat bucking over a bouncy rhythm, while a cut like ‘Big Storm,’ with its plugged-in steel has an alternative country chug and a clawhammer rhythm delivered as a proper partnership.” -- Bryant Liggett, The Alternate Root
