Event Description

Old Baby Mackerel play high-energy, foot-stomping Bluegrass featuring a fantastic line-up of renowned musicians from some of the UK’s best folk, Americana, and festival bands. Their music uses the sounds of fiddle, banjo, mandolin, guitar, and double bass to get knees bouncing and elbows swinging to the virtuosic sound of blistering solos and sweet harmonies. Be prepared to be transported back in time to the early 20th century and across the Atlantic to North America where songs dramatized the small-town fascination with locomotion, the trials of murderous drunks and the veneration of whisky and bootleg liquor.

With three members of Flats & Sharps (Mikey P, Danny H & Liam on mando, fiddle and bass respectively)


“That’s the first Bluegrass track I’ve played on Upload and I love it, so, so good!”

Adam Crowther, BBC Radio Bristol


“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
