Mad dog Mcrea (UK)

A sound mixed, mashed and finely honed through years of live gigs


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.

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.

In constant demand and having played just about every festival and two-bit, jibe-arsed dive in Christendom Mad Dog Mcrea toured the UK at the end of 2014 on their Longer Road Tour.

The famous purple happy bus is fired up and ready for action, and there’s room for you – jump aboard!
“This is rowdy, heartfelt, room shaking, spirit-stirring music that only the dead can’t enjoy.”
