Saturday Shenanigans: Mud On The Tyres + Candy Mountain
Mud On The Tyres are a group of experienced musicians who were drawn together by a love of upbeat, fun, country style music.
Warren (Vocals, Guitar) and Akos (Lead Guitar, Vocals) got together as an acoustic duo writing original country style music. Marek (Piano, Vocals) then joined, quickly followed by Lee (Fiddle, Harmonica, Vocals) who adds to the country sound. It didn’t take long before it developed into a six-piece band with Eliot (Bass) and the newest member Keith (Drums).
So far they have had some great times at festivals, played some excellent venues and have been fortunate enough to win 2 days recording time at the amazing Rockfield Studios by winning the, “Battle of the Bands,” at the Rockfield Country Music Festival.
They have focused on creating an atmosphere of fun with their music and performances to ensure they appeal to music lovers of all generations. It’s clear to see that making people tap their feet, dance and laugh at some of their lyrics makes for a slightly different night out than people expect. This, of course, doesn’t stop them writing more touching and melodic songs that clearly show the versatility of the band.
Support comes from Candy Mountain - bearded guy from Llandewi-Brefi mountains, who has a mixture of bluesy, energetic and rhythmic sound. Excitable covers and own material.
