Howdy, and welcome to Gruff Country. 
And it is not a standard "country". In fact, this inspired and talented young band out of Victoria, BC challenges you to pin a label on their music. The Gruff filter numerous folk traditions through the sieve of modern experience to create a truly unique sound. From old-time to country; from bluegrass to good old rock ‘n’ roll; these young songwriters harmonize, sing and shout songs of joy, sorrow, and everything in between; with astounding energy and passion. With their easy, comfortable stage presence and their obvious delight in performance, The Gruff bring a smile to every audience. Their extensive experience shines through songs of love, heartache, travel, and hard work, interspersed with traditional tunes picked up over their various journeys. Every song has a story behind it, and the audiences learn more about the band through charismatic and amusing stage banter. This group's genuine chemistry is apparent and engaging. The essence of The Gruff was hatched in the nest of Victoria's busking scene over five years ago. From those days of traditional Irish pub tunes, the young band evolved and grew together, creating a comfortable rapport with each other and their well-established West Coast fan base.  As they matured creatively and instrumentally,  they   incorporated   original  songs and a country flavour into their repertoire. Received with enthusiasm by audiences, the young Goats nurtured this original sound and transformed themselves into the band today known as The Gruff.
