Black Bart

This is actually a band which was reccomended to me by my brother. They are based in Bournemouth and since they first performed in 2004 they have played at many venues. 

One of the things that attracted me to writing a review on this band, after hearing their music, is their use of mixing genres to create a unique hybrid.  The main genre which comes through in their music is country. However, the use of electric guitars and a rougher voice to the usual country singer, adds a rock element to their songs.

The song which particularly attracted my attention is “Good Hearted Woman”. The main melody line is very country style yet the addition of electric guitars rather than acoustic guitar makes the genre more hybrid as mentioned above.  This song is very upbeat and its main theme of love is continued throughout the song.
