The Doggone Brothers

About Us

It’s the unplanned things that make live music fun: enter the hillbilly musical stylings of the Doggone Brothers. This Kootenay-based duo is Clayton Parsons (The Good ‘Ol GoatsThe Parsons) on banjo, guitar and dobro, and Michael Hepher (Craig Young BandRedgirl, As The Crow Flies) on mandolin, octave mandolin, and guitar.

Homey, approachable, irreverent, and uplifting are all words that describe the Doggone Brothers well. Both seasoned musicians in their own right, Clay and Mike crossed paths at a mutual friends’ birthday party and ended up jamming the night away. That night of jamming turned into a regular thing: The Doggone Brothers. The music is distinctly ‘grassy, with a dash of old country and a side of old-time music throughout their set of originals and hillbilly cover tunes. They are sure to entertain as they duel back and forth with their respective axes—carving a unique sonic experience into any traditional set.  

Known for their spontaneous laughs, cheeky banter, and all-in stage presence, the Doggone Brothers round out their sets with incisive breaks, blood-style harmonies, and thoughtful tunes. This doggone duo brings a unique flavour to any stage, festival, or street corner. You never know what you’re going to get from the Doggone Brothers, but you can count on it being a doggone good time!
