This Christmas, BAC are rewriting the rule book to bring you Mad Dog Mcrea at the Town Hall. Last year we were bursting at the seams with Mad Dog fans – so we thought we would spread our wings to give more fans a chance to see this remarkable band. With the release of their new album, Almost Home, this year sees the band touring across the country culminating in a fabulous end of tour extravaganza in Bridgwater. This Christmas why not try something new for your staff party and come along to this room shaking and spirit stirring gig.
ANNOUNCED: The Leylines, British folk-punk sound sensation will be supporting Mad Dog Mcrea for this evening
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 new 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 – Folk musicians, in particular have been playing tribute to the hero’s of WW1 of late – MDM are no exception, offering up their bone chilling song – “You Can’t Find Me”. “The Sound” written by Seth Lakeman includes beautiful guest vocals from Suzie Mac.
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 – ALMOST HOME – encapsulates that – and so much more.
The famous purple happy bus is fired up and ready for action, and there’s room for you – jump aboard this Christmas!!
The Leylines was started by a group of West Country musicians driving home from a session at the legendary Sawmills studios. Levelling The Land by The Levellers was on the car stereo. Something about the sound of the record, the rolling Cornish landscapes and the smell of summer connected in vocalist Steve’s head.
Steve, a product of council estates and stints in the Army, put his observations on the state of the nation into music and started writing. Adding the different musical backgrounds of band mates Matt (guitar), Pete (bass), Dave (drums) and Hannah (violin), The Leylines have created a style that combines the acerbic social commentary of Paul Weller with a folk-rock vibe that will send you right back to those long, hazy, festival days.
Under 18 years must be accompanied by an adult
