Portland, Oregon-based bluegrass revivalists the Water Tower Bucket Boys are coming to town as part of their UK and Ireland tour to celebrate the release of their brand new five-song EP Where The Crow Don’t Fly. The Water Tower Bucket Boys honed their sound playing square dances and bluegrass festivals up and down the west coast. However, the boys wanted to take their music further and a new sound was born, loosely based on the traditions of bluegrass, punk rock, blues, Cajun, folk and country, and transcending musical boundaries. Their music features tight 3-part harmonies and powerful instrumentals, and is lots and lots of fun. And here’s the good news. Whereas their gigs in the likes of Belfast, Glastonbury, Brighton and London all cost money to attend, their show in Liverpool is absolutely FREE! And where better to see them play than The Caledonia, home to our own Loose Moose String Band? It takes place on Sunday 4th September and it’s an 8pm start. You can find the group at watertowerbucketboys.com
