The Mad Ferret Band Biography 2013
Scottish Folk Duo
The Mad Ferret Band are the Scottish duo on the U.K. folk scene known for their hard hitting blend of traditional and contemporary Folk music. Their lively, energetic performances are packed with “blisteringly fast mandolin solos”, tight harmonies, driving cajon beats and earth-moving guitar sounds. The influence from both Scottish and Irish folk music has helped shape their unique sound.
Based in Perth, they are an extremely hard working band having played over 170 gigs across the U.K. and Europe in 2012 and look to be even busier in 2013, with more festival performances and European tours.
Notable gigs in 2013 have been; Northern Roots Festival, Montrose Music Festival, Mull Music Festival, Edinburgh Fringe Festival and Whisky and Song European Swiss tour.
In 2012 they released their first album, entitled – A Live Album, “Containing an infectious mix of traditional tunes, emotive ballads and rousing foot stompers”, Heartland FM.
Their first studio album is due to be released at the end of 2013, along with an Album Launch tour around Scotland.
