Making a much-anticipated debut at The Wesley Centre, Maltby on Friday 10th November are Track Dogs – a marvellous melange of a band comprising two Irishmen, an Englishman and an American, (Garrett Wall, Dave Mooney, Howard Brown and Robbie K Jones), 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 following 15 years they have added banjo, ukulele and mandolin as well as honing gorgeous four-part vocal harmonies, now very much an integral part of their sound.
With seven albums under their belts, their versatile and accessible style allows Track Dogs to be at home in festivals as diverse as Americana Music Madrid, Ireland’s 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.
Well-established in Spain where they are based, they are surprising music lovers everywhere with ‘sunshiny 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, who also represent folk legends Show of Hands, with whom they have released a 23-track live album The Dog Show Sessions from their 2022 tour and joined them for their final performance at the Royal Albert Hall in April.
A wonderful night of live music awaits and tickets priced at £15.00 are available from the Wesley Centre on 01709 811118 or online at www.wegottickets.com.
