The Good Ol’ Goats (from Cranbrook) appeared at our 2013 Steamboat Festival. They were just little kids then, hot from their CBC Searchlight Talent Contest triumph. They were absolutely irresistible – they got everybody up dancing and jumping with joy. They’re back for this year’s festival. Can’t wait to see how they’ve grown. They’re no doubt even hotter! Their alternative folk style puts an original high-energy spin on traditional instrumentation, and wins them the hearts of loyal fans wherever they go.
