Mad Dog Mcrea

Our Saturday Night Headliners

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.

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.

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