The Mad Ferret Band are a Scottish duo, known on the folk scene for their hard hitting blend of traditional and contemporary Folk music. Their lively, energetic performances are packed with “blisteringly fast Mandolin solos”, tight harmonies, driving Cajon beats and earth-moving Guitar sounds. The influence from both Scottish and Irish folk music has helped shape their unique sound.
The Duo features Chris Woods on Mandolin, Guitar and Vocals and Sandy Stirton on Guitar, Cajon and Vocals.
Based in Perth, Scotland they are an extremely hard working band having played an average of 180 gigs a year across the U.K. and Europe. Since forming in 2012 they have been honing their music by playing the pub and small venue scene. They look to be even busier in 2015, with more festival performances and European tours on the way.

The Tribe are the UK's freshest new Hip Hop, Reggae collective. Typically they blend hip hop drum grooves with smooth bass lines and classic offbeat reggae guitar skanks. Vocally they execute sweet and soulful pop which provide the perfect counterpoint to staccato rap verses. In previous reviews their live show has been described as "A benchmark for live shows that few bands on the local scene would even get close to" and "a master class in accessible, enthralling music and stagecraft".
