Mad Nanny Music Is a not for profit venture to promote the traditional Acoustic, blues, bluegrass, folk & roots music and dance of these islands and related musical activities. Established in April 1999, we feature guest artists of considerable renown and those newcomers on the way up in the music scene. The guest is supported by a resident band or singers, and we proudly encourage amateur singers and musicians to perform as ‘floor spots’ on guest nights and to join us on our songs & session and open floor evenings.

We are friendly and welcoming, don’t be shy, come and join us. Children are very welcome to all of these evenings; the tradition is in their hands after all.

We hope you can join us for some splendid entertainment.
