Bootleg Betty hurls you into all corners of the roots music. Full of energy, this Dutch band fires its polyphonic mix of rockabilly, country and rock and roll at you. Their contemporary approach to these traditional genres results in a recognizable sound which is anything but outdated.
This can be heard on debut EP Left the Barn, released on the brand new Kroese Records label founded by record store Kroese. The sold-out release show one week later marked the start of a tour at venues and festivals. With the release of the music video for single A Song Called Wanda – a tribute to rockabilly star Wanda Jackson – the band continued its tour. Their contagious live shows helped them gain invitations for big festivals like Paaspop, Bevrijdingsfestival Zwolle and Zwarte Cross within a year. In 2020 the band will release it’s new album Soul Searching. A fresh new album with a lot of new experiments and influences without losing the recognizable Bootleg Betty Roots Feel.
