Hillgrass Bluebilly in August and September 2012

Hello Dirtyfoot Family. Is everybody ready for the Muddy Roots music festival? We will be there Labor Day weekend and can hardly wait and we hope to see you there. This last Tuesday, Aug 21, 2012... "The Bootleg Beginnings from the Shack Out Back" by the Boomswagglers had it's official worldwide release and we also announced the official worldwide release date for "Mighty Lonesome Man" by James "Slim" Hand on Tuesday October 16, 2012.

 Hillgrass Bluebilly will have our official release write-up by Tressa A. Burns posted on "Mighty Lonesome Man" by Texas Country & Western music legend, James Hand, in the next week or so. Until then, the folks over at did a informational on it and you can see that, at this link here .

After the Muddy Roots Music Festival, Restavrant will be on tour with Scott H. Biram, the dirty old one man band. Our own Tressa A. Burns at headquarters released the offcial tour bio for this SHB tour, have a looksy......

 "Restavrant (Rest^vRant) is junkyard high art. A catapult that soaks in a wealth of contrasting influences and Pollacks back the mash obscuring any predictable template of genre. Electrocana, roots, punk, country and slide blues would seem to be rough acts to merger but through the mad science of front man Troy Murrah the formula hits the nail.

Murrah, a thirty something Los Angeles based Victoria, Texas native possesses a restless wiring that lends dimensional creativity to his projects incorporating visual art and a compelling asthetic in live shows as well as promotional materials. Troy got a late start musically but hit the ground running. During a moderate "social hiatus" he shacked up with a Silvertone and cut his teeth on the works of Mississippi Fred Mcdowell. He began as a solo one man band act until joining forces with J State who expanded the dynamic and provided percussion, Korg and back up vocals on the 2008 Narnack records realease 'Returns to the Tomb of Guiliano Medidici' and the 2011 album ' Yeah I Carve Cheetahs' under Hillgrass Bluebilly Records. In the current incarnation, Murrah is backed by a rotating cast of talent that captains the elaborate salvage lot trash kit that serves as the driving force of the bands overall sound.

Rest^vrant's hybrid of big belt buckle break loops, slide, banjo, vox and harp have been well received over the course of two full length releases and an extensive west coast and european tour. The band is currently in studio recording what will be their third release and a U.S tour with veteran "dirty ol' one man band" Scott H. Biram has been confirmed for the fall."
