Old Baby Mackerel brings over-the-top hillbilly antics to Stroud

Where: The Prince Albert, Rodborough Hill, Stroud

When: 8pm - 11pm, 3 November

The Prince Albert, one of the coolest pubs in Stroud, will host Old Baby Mackerel this Saturday night.

The five-piece band play furiously fast, knee-slapping bluegrass, mixing skilful musicianship, five-part harmonies and raucous, over-the-top hillbilly antics that make you "yee-haw" harder than a nine-pound hammer.

Watch out for good old-fashioned songs about whisky, murder, and railroads played at a 500 hundred bpm with harmonies that make the Beach Boys sound like Eric Cartman. Woo-eee!

In 2018 Old Baby Mackerel headlined The Northern Ireland 27th Annual Bluegrass and Appalachian Music Festival, the amazing Chai Wallahs stage at Shambala Festival, Acoustic Summer in Germany, Port Eliot, Nozstock Festival, Bimble Bandada and Broadstairs Folk Week amongst others. They are currently recording an album with the UK's best banjo player, Leon Hunt and have Asia and Europe tours scheduled for Spring and Autumn 2019.

Support for show comes in the form of Zahra O'Shea, a talented musician from Ireland's wild Atlantic west. She fuses a range of genres including Folk, Jazz, Blues, Soul, RnB and Reggae whilst writing conscious and thought-provoking lyrics sure to leave you feeling equally joyful and nostalgic. Zahra is based in Bristol and has become a well-known artist, touring with bands such as the Midnight Zu throughout the UK and European festival scene.

Food is served from middle Eastern/Mexican fusion family business Rubols..
