RHUDDLAN’s hardest working cosmic country blues trio are hitting the trail with a brand-new album this spring.

The simply incredible Goat Roper Rodeo Band are embarking on their biggest tour to date to coincide with the release of their third release Tall Grass on March 18.

This year the band will add stops in Sheffield, Leeds Liverpool and even as far afield as Italy and Switzerland to their previous winning slots at Cambridge Folk fest, Bestival and Kilkenny Roots in Ireland.

The band – comprised of former Prestatyn High brothers Jim and Tom Davies along with childhood friend Sam Roberts - first came together about six years ago, and are currently paying their dues living together in a caravan while they share the gospel of their old souls.

Together with just an upright bass, two old guitars and a bucketful of aching harmony, The Goat Roper Rodeo Band preach country blues like you’ve never heard.

It’s up, it’s down, it’s soft and loud, it’s dark and lonesome too, there’s hurt and shame and some mean old pain - but there’s nothing but pure love for their craft.

Expect a hint of the cosmic country of Gram Parsons, a sniff of Dylan and a twist of Waylon Jennings’ bluesy spirit and so much more.

On their latest album, which builds on the joyous highs and heart wrenching lows of Hail The Remedy' and 'Cosmic Country Blue’, the cosmic cowboys have turned to old friend and frequent touring buddy Romeo Stodart of fellow family affair The Magic Numbers for production duties.

From the sleepy swamp swell intro and ensuing reverence of Unwrap My Bones, with a stop and the incredibly uplifting and sunny verses of Desert Flower right up to the haunting cowboy lament finale, Don’t Mind the Rain - it’s a picture perfect, true and honest account of life, love and the blues of a real life country blues band.

Jim Davies said: We've become great friends with Romeo and the rest of the band over the last few years, we've even had the pleasure of supporting them on tour all over the UK and Ireland, we've had so many wonderful nights with those guys.

“Big cosmic love brothers and sisters welcome to the tall grass and truck easy out there.”

To experience the sheer joy of one of North Wales’ true treasures, catch them live at the Blue Sky Cafe, Bangor on Wednesday, March 20 tickets £10.
