Ferocious Dog are a full-on six-piece band that encompass folk infused with rock, reggae and Celtic vibrations. The combination of instruments creates a palette of sound that offers infinite variations: going in hard to get the audience up and moving, or slipping into melodic passages and dub-like fusions.
From playing Glastonbury in front of a massive crowd, to sharing the stage with The Levellers on their European tour, Ferocious Dog left the audience under no doubt that they had witnessed a band that has the talent and passion to go on and dominate the folk/punk music scene.
With European tours booked for 2017 and slots at some of the UK’s favourite festivals, we can’t wait to welcome them down on the farm and ahead of their performance we asked them a few questions….

Seeing Dans face at Glastonbury ’92 coming out of the Carter USM mosh pit at 12 years old.

Selling out Rock City on our first attempt and making history as the first unsigned band to do so in its 35 year history. And it’s our home town of Nottingham which made it extra special
