Germany, run the bath, we’ll be home soon!

3 04 2014

So if you didn’t already know, we’ll be hitting the road in Germany again later this month. It’ll be a stripped back affair but we aim to make it better than the last time we were over there. A few more dates may be added in the coming days but as it stands, we’re really excited about hitting our old favourite, Molloy Malone’s, as well as a load of new places.

Acoustic performance

 





Forfey and Seven Summits.

7 08 2012

That was some weekend! Forfey Music Festival provided Master & Dog with another chance to try out some of the new material on their forthcoming, self-titled album.

‘Master & Dog, one of the most consistently good live bands on the island, play a selection of new tunes as well as key tracks from their first album, with ‘Heavyweight’ and ‘Canada’ being some standout songs from not only their set, but the whole weekend.’  – Stevie Lennox (AU Magazine)

A great time was had by all. Forfey is consistently one of the best festivals in Northern Ireland. A true music lovers festival. Fair play to the all the crew and the Minford family for putting the whole thing on.

In other news, this Thursday sees the release of the new Seven Summits album, which was recorded and mixed by Master & Dog’s very own Phil d’Alton. Not only that, but Master & Dog will be one the bill for the night so make sure you get down and hear all the new tunage on offer! Arc Royale and Heritage Centre are also on the bill. A night not to be missed!
