Fast and Furios.....this is Barnyard Fury
Barnyard Fury is a rock based band with acoustic instruments, wildly mixing Punk, Rock, Ska, Blues and Bluegrass, a delightful mixture of covers and original material, so familiar and yet not. The Band has six regular members, most of them born and raised in the southern part of the Dalarna-region, where the mighty Dal River slows down through the forests and farmlands on its way to the sea.
If you listen carefully you can actually hear the trees, the fields, and the river echoing in the music. The area is also known for its steel mills and some say that you can hear them too.
This is a band at their best live on stage, furiously delivering the music of a lifetime before a stunned audience. They have done a lot of touring in the past, playing at festivals and other events around Sweden and they have also done a few gigs abroad, notably in Egypt.
So get yourself ready for a new musical experience. It’s hard not to like it!
