These legends will need no introduction for the majority of you but if you've not had the pleasure then here is a heads up on what you've been missing!!
Mad Dog Mcrea raise hands, lift feet and start parties wherever they play with their spellbinding recipe of folk, pop, rock, jazz, bluegrass and ‘shake your ass’ music. They demand you to dance, whisking up whistles, fiddles and mandolins to collide in a spectacular explosion of infectious fun.
Thanks to three storming gigs at Glastonbury 2013 (notably the Avalon Stage), the release of their official video ‘Happy Bus’, regular radio play by esteemed folk such as Mike Harding, and in no small part the utter dedication of their huge fan base - momentum is definitely gathering pace.
Mad Dog Mcrea’s name is firmly established on the live music scene, and they are in huge demand from festivals, live music venues and traffic wardens across the country. They were named ‘Best Live Act’ at the 2012 South West Music Awards, and in the same awards in 2011 their last album ‘The Whirling Dervish’ scooped ‘Best Album of the Year’. A much-anticipated live studio album is underway, due for release later this year.
The famous purple happy bus is fired up and ready for action, and there’s room for you – jump aboard!
