About

Bill Grogan's Goat is a collective of five Detroit musicians who have played on and off together for many years in the Detroit music scene. Over the span of their musical careers, the five have covered musical styles ranging from symphonic band music to hardcore punk rock and from solo Irish ballad singing to avant garde Jazz. All these influences come together to bring a fresh approach to classic Irish folk music, utilizing a rock band format of bass, drums, guitars and traditional instruments such as Irish bouzouki, tin whistle, mandolin, fiddle and highland pipe.

Bill Grogans Goat combines solid Detroit rock with traditional Celtic melodies to produce a truly unique sound, tightly combining traditional songs with reels, jigs, and hornpipes at a pace that will challenge the Lord of the Dance himself.
