Old Baby Mackerel play furiously-fast, sh*t-kicking, knee-slapping Bluegrass that makes you “yee-haw” harder than a nine pound hammer. Expect tales of whisky, murder and railroads, raucous hillbilly antics, and blistering solos played at 500 BPM with harmonies that make the Beach Boys sound like Eric Cartman.
In the last two years Old Baby Mackerel have played The International Spring Bluegrass Festival (Switzerland), Glastonbury Festival (UK), Jai Thep (Thailand), The Northern Ireland Bluegrass and Appalachian Music Festival, Chai Wallahs at Shambala Festival and Pflsterspektakel (Austria) amongst many others. So grab yer gun, pull up yer britches and get ready for some good old fashioned Bluegrass!
“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.
