FEROCIOUS Dog is being set loose for a high octane performance in Settle this weekend.
A full-on six-piece band that encompass folk infused with rock, reggae and Celtic vibrations, Ferocious Dog will take the stage in Settle Victoria on Saturday night.
One referred to as the “new noise on the block”, Ferocious Dog are well known and popular for their high octane live performances.
The deeply personal song lyrics and a combination of instruments creates a palette of sound that can get the audience up and moving or slip into melodic passages and dub-like fusions.
Dan Booth, on fiddle, and Ellis Waring, playing just about everything with strings, bring a huge amount of intricacy to the breakneck pace of their songs.
Les Carter on guitar and the rhythm section of Scott Walters and John Alexander hold things together brilliantly, and with Ken Bonsall’s lyrics and sheer likability, the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.
In 2016 the band played Billy Bragg’s Left Field stage at Glastonbury, shared the stage with The Levellers on their sold out European and UK tour in November and December and had many of their own sold out shows in-between.
In November 2015, the band sold out Rock City in Nottingham in advance – a historic moment, the first time in the 35 year history of the venue an unsigned band had achieved this feat.
With European and UK tours booked for 2017 and slots at some of the UK’s and European favourite festivals, this promises to be another exciting year in the ascent of a band who are eager to dominate the folk/punk scene.
All tickets for the performance cost £13.50.
Doors open at 7pm, and after a support band starts the gig at 8pm, Ferocious Dog will take the stage at 8.45pm.
