Event Details

Fuelled By Cider are pleased to bring OLD BABY MACKEREL (trio) to The Ropemakers, Bridport on Friday 26th April.


Old Baby Mackerel play high-energy, foot-stomping Bluegrass featuring some of the UK’s best Bluegrass musicians. Be prepared to be transported back in time to the early 20th century and across the Atlantic to North America where songs dramatized the small town fascination with locomotion, religion and the veneration of whisky and bootleg liquor. Gathered around a single condenser microphone in the true Bluegrass style, the sounds of banjo, guitar, mandolin, fiddle and double bass blend lightning-fast rhythm, virtuosic solos and evocative harmonies to get knees bouncing and elbows swinging.


In the last four years Old Baby Mackerel have been featured on three different BBC radio stations including 6 Music with Cerys Matthews, have played Glastonbury Festival festival twice (2019 and 2022), sold out venues across the UK such as Green Note in London, The Acorn in Penzance and Seaford Little Theatre in Sussex.

They have played headline slots at Purbeck (2022) and Priddy (2023) folk festivals, the Northern Irish, Cornish, Welsh, East Anglian and Swiss Bluegrass festivals, at venues and festivals all over the UK and Ireland as well as Belgium, Austria, Germany, The Netherlands, Switzerland, Italy, Portugal and Thailand.


2024 promises to be an epic year with a busy UK Spring tour being booked, festival slots filling up and their first studio album in the works.
