Oatmeal for the Foxhounds was formed in October 2000 by Banastre Tarleton and long-time associate David McGowan. The Foxhounds are tight, extremely entertaining, and a must see for those who like their music au naturel. Two earth-based guitars, vocals with an edge, and a couple of foot-powered tambourines. Their song list includes everything from Johnny Cash to Green Day plus some tasty originals. O4TF has made a name for itself as one of the top acoustic acts in the Midwest, playing a heavy schedule of concerts, club dates, and private parties. In the fall of 2002 Oatmeal for the Foxhounds offered their fans a double-live CD, LIVE SOUNDBLASTER BOOTLEG, and a follow up album, LIVE IN HARTSBURG, was made available in May 2003. A new studio CD, titled TALLY HO, was officially released by Green Horse Records in March 2005 and contains five of the duo's original songs.
