Here to get your Christmas off to a great start.

From self-penned songs 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 – ALMOST HOME – encapsulates that – and so much more.

The famous purple happy bus is fired up and ready for action, and there’s room for you – jump aboard!
