Track Dogs (4 Nov)
Saturday 4 Nov 7.30PM
Track Dogs are two Irishmen, an Englishman and an American, whose artistic name derives from the dark subterranean world of New York’s subway system.
Formed in the Autumn of 2006 in Madrid, around the eclectic line-up of acoustic guitar, electric bass, trumpet and cajón, over the years they have added banjo, ukulele and mandolin as well as honing their four part vocal harmonies, now very much an integral part of their sound.
Well-established in Spain where they are based, they are surprising music lovers everywhere with 'sun-shiny songs thriving on dark themes behind irresistible rhythms'. After a fortuitous invitation to the Costa del Folk festival in Ibiza they have teamed up with Firebrand Music in the UK and have released a 23 track live album with Show of Hands from their 2022 UK tour “The Dog Show Sessions”. Show of Hands recently announced the band will be joining them for their next performance at the Royal Albert Hall on April 10th.
With 7 albums under their belts their versatile and accessible style allows Track Dogs to be at home in festivals as diverse as Americana Music Madrid, Electric Picnic, Grand Northern Ukulele Festival, Shrewsbury Folk Festival, Folk Alliance Intl, Cork Jazz Festival or even Trafalgar Square’s Saint Patrick’s Day super stage.
