Warren And The Magpies
We're a group of Midlands based musicians who decided to collect shiny and eclectic pop and rock classics and rework them into a foot-stomping folk/Bluegrass style.
We play everything from Depeche Mode to Black Sabbath, via Erasure and Duran Duran, in ways that the original writers would never have dreamed!!
Fiddle, mandolin, and kazoos are all used to re-imagine these classic tunes!!
We're all seasoned pro and semi-pro musicians, who've worked in a variety of musical environments, from West End shows to major orchestras, with a little bit of heavy metal thrown in for good measure.
Our folky bluegrass reworkings have brought us together in a new mission: to turn any party or occasion into a toe tapping, foot stomping, dancetastic event!!
Mumford style bands are popular choices for weddings and parties at the moment. We play similar instruments and carefully choose our songs to enable you to dance the night away!
