Dotty View: Bad Cardigan


Lancashire based acoustic indie/folk duo Bad Cardigan have been together since 2011 In the past two years they’ve had regular gigs across the country, and have supported both The Levellers and Proud Mary on tour.

Listening to their music, you’d be forgiven for thinking they’d been together for life – they gel together so well, and they’ve got their formula down to a tee. Two guitars, two voices that compliment each other perfectly, along with the down to earth, honest lyrics, makes this a band that will appeal to so many people.

From the deeply honest and retrospective Nursery Rhymes, to the toe-tapping Falling In, to the gentle wistfulness of The Goodies, Bad Cardigan have shown they can cover a variety of styles, whilst not losing their obvious love for what they do.
