We had an amazing time at Eden Festival 2017! Here’s us before our set enjoying a cheeky beer outside Rabbie’s Tavern
The Mad Ferret Band confirmed to play Eden Festival 2017
More exciting news on the Mad Ferret front – confirmation for a set at Eden Festival 2017! Kicking off a busy weekend in Dumfriesshire at the Rabbie’s Tavern Stage, Mad Ferret will be joining a sensational line-up, including Elephant Sessions, Heron Valley and many more.
Stephan Scott, stage manager for the Rabbie’s Tavern stage, said, “I’m absolutely delighted to have Mad Ferret on board for Eden.”
“I caught them at the Mull Music Festival a couple of years ago and was blown away by them. You’d think there was a 4 or five piece band on stage. Their stage camaraderie is as good as any out there, but the passion they play and sing with, together with being outrageously good at their instruments is what makes it for me.”
Scott describes Rabbie’s Tavern as a “rootsy earthy Burns inspired watering hole”.
“We’ve had the best of upcoming Scottish traditional, folk and blues inspired music. Our crowd love a good knee’s up and can’t wait for Mad Ferret to bring their show to our stage!
Sandy from Mad Ferret commented, “We’ve been wanting to play Eden Festival for a few years now but always had other gigs on. Thankfully this year we can make it for the Thursday Night.”
“We got a great set time as well; 11.30pm, so everyone should be well in the swing of it! Can’t wait to show the folks there what we can do with a guitar, mandolin and wooden box!“
Acts across other stages include Gogol Bordello, Alabama 3, Have Mercy Las Vegas, Colonel Mustard And The Dijon 5, and no less than Mr Motivator himself!
And so it looks to be a ‘richt guid knees-up’! Eden Festival takes place 8-11th June 2017, just outside Moffat on the stunning Raehills meadows. Ticket tiers 1-3 are already sold out, so apply quickly if you wish to join the ferrets.
