Poor Ould Goat plays Irish folk/rock, bluegrass, country, rock, Americana, and original songs with high energy on acoustic instruments. The four members play a pile of instruments, collectively including mandolin, accordion, guitar, djembe, bouzouki, banjo, bodrhan, doumbek, tin whistle, drum kit, and three vocals. Setlists include Irish classics; popular rock, country and bluegrass; jigs and reels; and more. The shows include great music, sing-alongs, humor (disclaimer: our humor is never guaranteed to actually be humorous...), song requests, requests to leave, and revelry.
