For more information and tickets go to website

Mad Dog Mcrea blend a unique mixture of folk rock, pop, gypsy jazz, bluegrass and ‘shake your ass’ music. From self-penned songs of adventure, drinking, love and life, to traditional songs of gypsies, fairies, legless pirates and black flies – Mad Dog never fail to capture their audience with their infectious songs.

It was at Glastonbury in 2013 (notably the Avalon Stage), the release of their Happy Bus video, take-up from national radio from esteemed folk such as Mike Harding, and others………. Matched with the unshakable dedication of their massive and loyal to the hilt, fan base – that Mad Dog Mcrea began to become more than just a very popular, West Country festival act; – whilst obviously killing it live – Mad Dog Mcrea, determined that their fans and media alike – should see them as serious and acclaimed recording artists too.

Mad Dog’s new album ALMOST HOME, produced by Sean Lakeman, is an album fuelled with the all the essential Mad Dog energy and antics that the band have become known for – Dave Podmore writes engagingly about Mad Dog stuff – as one might expect, all night drives, police car chases – Folk musicians, in particular have been playing tribute to the hero’s of WW1 of late – MDM are no exception, offering up their bone chilling song – You Can’t Find MeThe Sound written by Seth Lakeman includes beautiful guest vocals from Suzie Mac.

In constant demand and having played just about every festival and two-bit, jibe-arsed dive in Christendom, Mad Dog Mcrea are, in every sense of the word, a live, band – ALMOST HOME – encapsulates that – and so much more.

The famous purple happy bus is fired up and ready for action, and there’s room for you – jump aboard!

Aly Bain & Phil Cunningham - Harberton Parish Hall, Tristford Road, Harberton TQ9 7SE nr Totnes. Doors 7.15pm for 8.00pm start. All tickets: £18.00 - for ticket information go to website
A rare opportunity in the South-West to catch two of the best traditional musicians you are ever likely to hear. Having toured together since 1986 to packed concert halls all over the world, multi-award-winning Aly & Phil continue to charm audiences with their stunning music, and on-stage charisma that defies description. Witty and humorous banter sits alongside tunes that tug the heartstrings, and joyous reels and melodies that have feet tapping along. Aly (MBE and Doctor of Music), a founder member of Boys of the Lough, is rightly regarded as Scotland's supreme fiddler- arguably the finest of all time. Aly launched the popular BBC TV series ‘Transatlantic Sessions’ in which he and Phil appear. Phil (MBE) is a world famous accordion player and composer. In recent years Phil's work-load has included many commissions for TV and film and an increasing amount of work as musical director for television and theatrical events.
