Ferocious Dog + support from Davey Malone and Tony Wright
They’ve been hailed “a representation of our gut feeling, savage and merciless” and at the same time, called “folk in the grand tradition of it being the peoples sound.” Ferocious Dog, however, are all those things.
More than a band, they are a family. “To listen to the Ferocious Dog as it snarls and growls at the world is to show responsibility” said a Louder Than War review of their brilliant, recently released and Fake News And Propaganda album, but this is an outfit that shows compassion too.
And that, in a world where the lines of truth are blurred by the rich, powerful and corrupt, is priceless. Ferocious Dog can wow a punk festival one minute, a folk festival the next – and fit right in anywhere.
With singer Ken Bonsall, violinist and bandleader Dan Booth and guitarist Carter combining, and John Leonard playing just about everything with strings, while the rhythm section of Alex Smith and John Alexander bring the power and energy, you have a whole greater than the sum of its parts.
“9/10 Earning a reputation as the UK’s most exciting Folk Punk band for good reason” – Vive Le Rock
The gig will be opened by Davey Malone, and support comes in the form of Tony Wright. Tony (pictured above) is best known as the singer for Bradford rock band Terrorvision. When he’s not touring with them, he writes, records and tours under his own name with a set-list made up of songs he has written on his acoustic guitar – some upbeat, some melancholic, but all thought-provoking.
