Since 2011 Boots Graham has been delivering dynamic live performances across Canada with the help of his band Boots & The Hoots. Backed by the incredibly talented Catherine Robertson on fiddle and tag team bassists Keith Rodger and Sydney Zadravec. Their original sound reconnects the upbeat roots of Country Music with the cowboy lifestyle of the west with plenty of original wit and grit. With their brand new 4th album “Buck or Two Buckaroo” gaining critical acclaim, Country Music People Magazine called it “Immediately likeable” and went on to say ‘there’s more to Boots & The Hoots than tales of honky tonkin or knockin’ them back”. Boots and the band are currently gearing up to take this humor laden, harmony drenched, pure country show on the road and to a honky tonk near you!
Buck or Two Buckaroo is more stripped back than previous releases. It’s more plaintive, Western and echoes of Alberta open plains. Boots Graham’s voice is more assertive and resonant. This project stands as proof there’s more to Boots & The Hoots than tales of honky tonkin and knockin’ them back. It’s immediately likeable with some nice fiddle work and rhythm that reflects the sadness of the character.– Duncan Warwick Country Music People
