Duncan McFarlane Band

Duncan McFarlane Band


dMb have gone from strength to strength since forming in 2000, ostensibly for a one-off pub gig as part of Otley Festival. The original ‘scratch band’ blew the place apart, the packed house loved it and further bookings were offered. They felt compelled to continue and have never looked back, with increasing festival appearances each year such as Beverley, Ely, Sidmouth, Shrewsbury (dMb have now played those last two twice!)

Now centered on Duncan’s acoustic & electric guitar work, the powerhouse rhythm section of Nick Pepper on drums and Martin Ward on bass guitar are elevated to yet greater heights by Anne Brivonese’s fiddle, Steve Fairholme’s melodeon and Steve Foster’s electric guitar. Their heady blend of traditional folk, with driving rhythm and vibrant energy, has gone down a storm with festival audiences across the UK – don’t miss ‘em

_‘Classic folk-rock sound of punchy bass lines and solid, driving rhythms __abound. There’s also a quality of delivery, vocal authority, and some __stunning lead riffs, plus neat accordion and fiddle interplay. __A real master class in just how to do the folk-rock thing right!’ – R2_

_‘Absolutely great; The Duncan McFarlane Band is chock full of great stuff, __really powerful playing and singing. He writes some great material that guy __and I love their lively versions of traditional folk songs’ – Mike Harding_

Plus support.
