The Dead Maggies. Story tellers and music makers, weaving tales from Van Diemen’s Land’s dark and turbulent history, with heavy drums, gang vocals and fast, powerful,  foot-stomping, wild folk music that makes you dance, shout and folk till you punk.

The Dead Maggies slammed into the Tasmanian music scene in 2013, they’ve since toured Australia, Europe & S.E. Asia; played gigs on tall ships and at Falls Festivals; in pubs, clubs, festivals, fields and squats. Their four releases to date have received critical acclaim and featured songs played on national and international radio.

They will be touring the UK for the second time in August 2017. Follow the tour on our newsfeed or on facebook or via folktilyapunk.com.

These releases have been albums of the week on ABC936 and Edge Radio, had tracks played on Triple J, received national and international airplay and rave reviews.
