The Pigs are bringing home the bacon with their 'Great Bluegrass Swindle Tour'

With their new album ‘The Great Bluegrass Swindle’ the Pigs are well known in Bluegrass, Country and Rockabilly circles. Also well remembered for their version of Beyonce’s ‘Single Ladies,’featuring John Williamson which had a huge following on YouTube and was featured on the ABC’s Spicks and Specks.

With success at the Tamworth Country Music Festival in 2012, The Port Fairy Folk Festival and numerous other gigs, they are taking their unique style on their ‘Great Bluegrass Swindle Tour’ in 2013.

In the words of the Pigs themselves “We’re packin’ the Double Bass, loadin’ the kazoo, cleanin out the portable toilet… doin’ everything Pigs need to do to prepare fir long hard nights on the road…. Singin’ fir beer, swiggin’ the beer, washin’ with beer. Really dose take alota careful plannin’. N careful diagrams of beer glasses…

Ewe can imagine we’d need an bloody good reason to go to all this trouble to drink beer n’ sing, well we got two:

1. Ewe’s – bein’ away from ewes make us mighty unhappy.

2. Wese got a great new album to promote… “The Great Bluegrass Swindle”. More info on this ‘ere.” The Pigs
