Mad Hatters

A guitar and organ driven blues trio, the band was formed in 2014 by Dundee born guitarist Simon Kennedy. Enlisting Mirek Hodun on the organ they set about writing and producing their debut album “Make Up Your Mind” themselves which was well received by critics and fans alike with BBC Radio 2’s Paul Jones saying the band were “deservedly the recipients of a great deal of praise” and the Independent Blues Broadcasters Association voting it their Album of the Month.

In 2015 Edinburgh based session drummer Brian MacLeod was brought in to complete the line-up of guitar, organ and drums.

The band draw on many influences from the three blues Kings to Robben Ford whilst managing to create a unique sound all of their own.
