MAD DOG MCREA *VENUE CHANGE*+ THE INFUSION
PLEASE NOTE: This event has been moved from Mama Roux’s to The Big Bull’s Head, 75 Digbeth, Birmingham B5 6DY. Original tickets remain valid. This show will now be ages 18+
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.
Mad Dog’s 2015 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.
“Mad Dog Mcrea perfectly fuse traditional folk songs with a grittier folk rock sound, tinged with notes of jazz and bluegrass. Almost Home reaches new depths – from within their ‘self penned songs of adventure, drinking, love and life to traditional tales of gypsies, fairies and pirates.” – Fatea Records
