Once upon a time there was a mysterious, lonesome cowgirl. She was roaming the prairie, when suddenly she came across 3 outlaws. They seemed like a bunch of dangerous men, so of course she joined them. The sun went down and the crickets started singing. Around the campfire they grabbed a few guitars, an autoharp, an upright bass and drums and started playing. That was the beginning of roots music. From that moment on, everywhere they went, they burned up the town.

So beware, because the fire is spreading!

Belle Starr & the Boot Jacks is a new band with an old soul. They all have experience in a wide range of styles and that’s what makes their sound so unique. It’s best to describe their style in general as “roots music”. With influences of country, blues and rock ‘n’ roll it’s nearly impossible to put this band in a specific box. Come and find out for yourself!
