THE FOUSTY TOUTONS are the world's original and perhaps only "Folkabilly" group. Combining the traditions of folk and billy music, the Foustys have collectively played thousands of shows for hundreds of people worldwide. Legend has it that years ago THE FOUSTYS embarked on a worldwide quest for the perfect touton and travelled as far away as The Goulds and other exotic locales. In doing so they furthered their knowledge of indigenous touton cultures and the unique musical styles which they have combined and refined into Folkabilly music. Their music can be heard on two Avondale Music compilations. In the Palm of Your Hand features the spiritual Go Tell it on the Touton and the Home Brew 7 features My Blueberry Eyed Jane. They are: Rik Barron, Gary Taylor, David Guy, and Ed Southerby ( not pictured for reasons of national security). Folkabilly - the music of yesterday played today like there's no tomorrow.
We got a real kick out of the full-page ad this band had in the festival program:
