BITTERROOT

Energy packed Rockabilly, Americana, Swamp Rock & Blues

“Rockabilly meets the bluesey sound of Bitterroot - a joy to watch and listen to. Peter and Broni expanded their duo to a four piece, adding drums and double bass, taking their sound to a thumping, bumping smiley place: it was impossible to keep still, as the dancers proved. Bitterroot’s two hour set got everybody in the mood for more ...”

 Bitterroot was assembled from locomotive parts in 2012.

It now blazes heat and goes like a train!

 

Faces will smile and feet will move - it's futile to resist.

The repertoire is one third original, two thirds covers of assorted 'Americana'.

There are lots of instantly recognisable songs, often having an original makeover.

 

Featuring a combination of soaring slide guitar and mandola, backed by thumping double bass and drums, the vocals then take it to another level with fabulous harmonies.
