The Barefoot Bandit

+ More to be announced

The Barefoot Bandit are a heavy-weight ensemble based in the South-West, UK. The band mixes various musical styles, incorporating elements of reggae, punk rock, dub and world music.

Building a strong and loyal fan base, TBB have spread their sounds far and wide. Packed out shows at prestigious venues have seen The Barefoot Bandit become a must watch act on the UK touring and festival circuit.

The group released their much-anticipated debut album at the end of 2022 to much acclaim, with their cover of Groove Armarda’s “By the River” getting multiple plays on BBC6. The 16 date “Hello Welcome” tour supports this release, ahead of UK and international festival dates.

Past festival highlights include appearances at Glastonbury Festival, Boardmasters, Boomtown Fair, and more including headline slots and main stage displays at some of the UK’s favourite music festivals.

Mad Dog Mcrea

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. In constant demand and having played just about every festival, Mad Dog Mcrea are, in every sense of the word, a live, band. Matched with the unshakable dedication of their massive and “loyal-to-the-hilt”, fan base, the band are more than just a very popular, festival act – with five albums under their belts, they are serious and acclaimed recording artists too.
