The Poozies

“This most recent reincarnation of The Poozies is all about mischief and rebellion…”

The ever-adventurous Poozies are back, showing off their fantastic new line-up and all-new material – most of which makes up their hard-hittig album ‘Punch’. Newbies Sarah McFadyen and Tia Files have joined founding member Mary Macmaster and long-term cohort Eilidh Shaw, and together they continue to play a dazzling, joyfully eclectic mix of contemporary and traditional tunes and beefy, powerful accompaniment, while their perfectly executed songs vary dramatically from Gaelic waulking songs to old-time American, country and pop.

“..a mischievous mix of musical mayhem, spellbinding showcase instrumentals and probably some frog legs to boot … unencumbered by conventional folk idioms” Jon Bennet, folking.com

“..outstanding originals, virtuoso interpretations and unexpected arrangements take you into uncharted realms … unique spheres that need no labels.” Tim Carroll, FolkWords

“..this is the serenade of a rare butterfly in the ring with a will to take on the wing and win. The Poozies return undaunted and full of energy.” Ian D Hall, Liverpool Sound and Vision
