Ferocious Dog are a full-on six-piece band that encompass 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.
