Bigfoot Yancey is a four piece modern Americana/folk band drawing influence from genres as far reaching as bluegrass and modern rock. They are an energetic modern down home band that harkens back to a sound of yesteryear mixed with a modern and fresh sound. For the recent release "Hills", the boys have added a fiddle/horn player and a drummer to bring a slightly different feel to the table.

Biography

Bigfoot Yancey is an Indianapolis-based band that has developed a sound that draws upon inspiration from various genres but always rooted in Americana and the blue collar sound that has defined many parts of this country for decades. In an era where more and more musicians are relying upon technology, Bigfoot Yancey strives to keep their music as raw and stripped down as possible. This allows the listener to fully engage with the music in a very real sense. Their live performances echo this raw, down home feel with energetic and lively performances that acclimate themselves very easily in a wide variety of settings. The band has developed a solid following in the Indianapolis area by identifying themselves as the blue collar boys next door that just so happen to play a mean guitar, banjo, harmonica, and even a saw. Bigfoot Yancey has performed throughout Indiana at an array of venues and festivals. They have been a featured act for two years at the Virginia Avenue Folk Fest. They have also played the Indiana Wine Fair and IndyPride Fest. They've had the opportunity to acts such as Joe Pug, Charlie Parr, Chicago Farmer, Kopecky, and many others. The boys just released their first full length LP, "Hills" after the success of their debut EP released in 2015. The album will showcase their songwriting and down home grit. Modern down home is a great way to describe the sound of their music and the vibe of their live shows
