We asked Madderam a few questions.
Tell Us About Yourself
Madderam are a fresh, new Folk Band based in Central Scotland. Comprising of a mix of Guitar, Fiddles, Whistle, Clarsach and Vocals, the band has built a totally unique sound while remaining true to their roots and influences. Madderam initially came together through the Feis Fhoirt Ceilidh Trail, which they toured as through the Summer of 2018 and have since struck out on their own, performing at events and venues such as Linlithgow Folk Festival, The Old Hairdressers and Stirling Folk Club to great success. The band have just released their debut album, Ebb and Flow on the 5th of March 2020. The band draws on a wide array of influences, from Breton and Gaelic Folk songs to Contemporary Scottish tunes and Self-Penned songs. All five members bring a unique voice and style to the band’s diverse and varied sound with a constantly developing and expanding repertoire.
What are your plans for the future?
Our immediate plans for the the future include performing our album live at postponed concerts in venues such as Stirling Folk Club, Falkirk Folk Club and Butefest. We hope to take the momentum built from our first album release and organise a slightly larger tour of Scotland to build up our live following and promote our music to a wider audience.
We also intend to film a music video for our single, Pound A Week Rise and are in the very early stages of compiling material for our second album which we also hope to record in the future.
Thanks to Creative Scotland for their support in making this happen.
