Old Baby Mackerel

— The Canteen
All the best tunes to send you whistling into Yuletide
price: See event details


Old Baby Mackerel play furiously-fast, sh*t-kicking, knee-slapping Bluegrass that makes you “yee-haw” harder than a nine pound hammer. Expect tales of whisky, murder and railroads, raucous hillbilly antics, and blistering solos played at 500 BPM with harmonies that make the Beach Boys sound like Eric Cartman.

In the last two years Old Baby Mackerel have played The International Spring Bluegrass Festival (Switzerland), Glastonbury Festival, Jai Thep (Thailand), The Northern Ireland Bluegrass and Appalachian Music Festival, Chai Wallahs at Shambala Festival, Pflsterspektakel (Austria) and Port Eliot amongst many others. They are currently recording an album with the UK’s best banjo player, Leon Hunt and have UK and European tours lined up for Autumn and Spring.

So grab yer gun, pull up yer britches and get ready for some good old fashioned Bluegrass!
