Etienne Pronk- banjolin
Their bandname name is based upon the legend of Maggie of the Moor, a ghostly sheperdess who roams the moors at night. She captures the soul of every sinner she meets, and adds it to her flock of evil sheep.
Hence the sheepshead with the ‘evil eyes’ logo is chosen as their trademark image.
Maggie’s Flock have built a repertoire of over 25 songs, all of which are own material.
Their songs have narrative lyrics about booze, chaos, romance and death, often with a twist of black humour and irony.
Influenced by musical heroes such as The Pogues, Flogging Molly and Dropkick Murphy’s the band have developed heir own distinctive sound: A potent blend of traditonal Scottish/Irish folk carried by tin whistle, accordion banjolin and bouzouki, mixed with a solid rocksound of drums, bass and guitar.
Distinctive are their uplifting songs with catchy folktunes that are unleashed upon the audience at the speed of a runaway train.
In 2019 the band have recorded the first six of 12 songs at Hubs’ Henhut soundstudio’s which will be released over the first half of 2020.
