Mad Ferret on Saturday 19th May 2018
The Mad Ferret Band are known on the Scottish music scene for their hard hitting blend of traditional and contemporary folk music. Their lively, energetic performances are packed with “blisteringly fast mandolin solos”, tight vocal harmonies, driving Cajon beats and earth-moving guitar sounds.
They supercharge influences from classic folk acts such as The Corries & The Dubliners, as well as contemporary tunes from composers like Gordon Duncan & Ross Ainsley. This, plus the constant onslaught of touring, provides the inspiration for their original tunes & songs. Yes, most of their songs are about alcohol, so if you don’t like drinking you better like dancing!
The Duo features Chris Woods on Mandolin, Guitar and Vocals and Sandy Stirton on Guitar, Cajon and Vocals.
Notable gigs include: Live performance on BBC Radio Scotland, Danny Kyle Stage at Celtic Connections, Perth Concert Hall, Northern Roots Festival, Montrose Music Festival, Mull Music Festival, Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Oran Mor, Eden Festival, Lindisfarne Festival, DingsDo Festival & multiple European tours.
The Mad Ferret Band have previously been invited to warm up the stage for renowned acts such as Dougie MacLean, Skerryvore, Mànran, Red Hot Chilli Pipers & Peatbog Faeries.
