“Fresh, charismatic, energy charged, and immensely fun; Brevard's Pretty Little Goat is one of Western North Carolina's finest young acoustic string bands.”
— Carol Rifkin- award winning musician, journalist and host of WNCW's mountain music show 'This Old Porch'
Pretty Little Goat is grassroots music at its finest. The band formed in 2013 through their common grounding in the deep well of local tradition found in the mountains of Western North Carolina. As young lovers of old-time music, Pretty Little Goat began winning string band competitions right away. Over the last four years the Goats have collaborated with many well respected local musicians including Jamie Laval, Blake Ellege, members of the Steep Canyon Rangers, Jeff Sipe, Jonathan Grey of Jump Little Children and many others.
Pretty Little Goat sees traditional music is a living art form; vibrant and evolving. Their debut self-titled album released in 2016 presents unique interpretations of old-time songs and tunes along with original material. In the Spring of 2019, the Goats released their second effort, Let The Sun Shine In, which focuses on new original songs and tunes, but maintains inspiration form traditional roots.
