FEROCIOUS DOG are the music business’ worst nightmare – a great band who are going to make it without anyone’s permission” – John Robb, Louder Than War

No way this band is following hipster templates – fronted by a big burly man with a mohican who sings impassioned political songs of broken Britain whilst his band seethes like a punky Levellers. A band that has the talent and passion to go on to dominate the folk/punk music scene!

A full-on six-piece sound of folk infused with rock, reggae and Celtic vibes. They can go in hard to get you moving and then slip in to blissful melody or dub-like fusion.

Dan Booth, on fiddle, and John Leonard, playing just about everything with strings, bring intricacy to a breakneck pace. Les Carter (ex Carter USM) on guitar and the rhythm section of Alex Smith and John Alexander tie the whole thing together, and with Ken Bonsall’s lyrics and, let’s be honest, sheer bloody likeability, you have a whole greater than the sum of its parts.

2016 was a defining year for Ferocious Dog. From playing Billy Bragg’s Left Field stage at Glastonbury in front of a massive crowd, to sharing the stage with The Levellers on their sold out European and UK tour and many sold out shows in-between.

Last year’s show was ACE – get down here again!
