MUSIC fans will be excited to hear Mad Dog Mcrea will return to Taunton as part of their UK tour.

They will be playing The Lawns Social Club on Friday, September 29, with support from local favourites Palooka 5.

Since their last visit to the county town Mad Dog Mcrea have continued their ever-upward trajectory, selling out numerous venues and establishing themselves as one of the must-see acts at festivals across the UK.

Mad Dog Mcrea blend a unique mixture of folk rock, pop, gypsy jazz, bluegrass and ‘shake your ass’ music.

From self-penned accounts 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 and two-bit, jibe-arsed dive in Christendom, Mad Dog Mcrea are, in every sense of the word, a live band. Their latest album Almost Home encapsulates that, and so much more.

Support comes from psychedelic surf band Palooka 5 who are well known on the Taunton music scene for their incendiary live performances..

Kev Davis from promoters Fuelled By Cider said: “Mad Dog Mcrea continue to go from strength to strength with their live act, new material and a brand new album.

“They have a large and loyal following in Taunton and we’re very excited to bring them back as part of their UK tour.”
