Old Baby Mackerel

— No.1 Harbourside
High-energy, foot-stomping Bluegrass
price: entry is free

Information:

Free entry!

Old Baby Mackerel play high-energy, foot-stomping Bluegrass and features a dizzying line-up of renowned musicians from some of the UK’s best folk, Americana and festival bands – Aaron Catlow (Sheelanagig), Bill Frampton (Boogaloo String Band), Kai Carter (Young Waters) Mikey Ponsford (Flats & Sharps) and Sam Garrard (ex-Ushti Baba).

Their music uses the rhythmic sounds of fiddle, banjo, mandolin, guitar and double bass to get knees bouncing and elbows wagging to the virtuosic sound of blistering solos and harmonies so sweet and they could make an onion cry! Expect tales of love, murder, whisky and railroads alongside 200bpm bangers and hilarious hillbilly antics.

“A fine band of musicians and entertainers who would be at home playing in any holler in Appalachia. Real crowd pleasers with every tune and song they perform.”
Richard Hurst, N. Ireland Bluegrass Music Festival Organiser
