Mad Dog Mcrea blend a unique mixture of folk rock, pop, gypsy jazz, bluegrass and ‘shake your bum’ 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.
A certain killer set on the Avalon stage at Glastonbury, take up from national radio and the release of their ridiculously good video for their ‘Happy Bus’ track (watch it!) matched with the unshakeable dedication of their fan base has seen Mad Dog McCrea descend being ‘just’ an incredibly popular West Country festival act, to serous and acclaimed recording artists.
We’re beyond excited for them to bring their inimitable brand of energy and antics to the fields of Starry Skies.
