Dr Bluegrass and the Illbilly 8

Foot stompin', thigh slappin' bluegrass from the deep south (of England).

Dr Bluegrass and the Illbilly 8 draw inspiration from a wide range of unusual sources for their unique choice of songs. Everything from traditional bluegrass and gospel, to folk, pop and rock ensures that there is something for all ages, played with an energy and virtuosity that belies their young age. Songs about whiskey, wild women and the lonesome highway (to hell), as well as tunes you'll definitely know (but you won’t be sure why) - it’s been described many ways, but 'bluegrass on speed' is probably the most accurate.
