Ferocious Dog will be performing in Honiton next week, bringing with them their own brand of the music.

The band is a full-on six-piece group that encompasses 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.

The songs are deeply personal and their fans can really identify with the words.

Dan Booth, on fiddle, and John Leonard playing just about everything with strings, bring a huge amount of intricacy to the breakneck pace of their songs.

Les Carter (ex Carter USM) on guitar and the rhythm section of Alex Smith and John Alexander hold things together brilliantly, and with Ken Bonsall’s lyrics and sheer likability, you have a whole greater than the sum of its parts.

Ferocious Dog are well known and popular for their high octane live performances.

The band will be appearing at The Beehive, Dowell Street. Honiton on Friday, October 13, with doors opening at 8pm.

Tickets, £15(advance), £17(on the door) are available from the venue by calling 01404 384050.
