ABOUT MAD PUDDING
Mad Pudding play Celtic music with great drive and imagination,
blending influences and genres seamlessly -
however improbable they might appear to be!
(e.g. Leonard Cohen's First We Take Manhattan with a Brahms tune!)

Mad Pudding is one of the best-known bands to emerge from Canada's coast to coast Celtic wave of the 1990s. They cultivated a distinctly West Coast flavour in their music, drawing on influences ranging from Canadian old time fiddling, Irish traditional music, funk, R & B, and progressive rock – and bringing them together in skillful arrangements, often with a dose of humour. Recently the band reunited with renewed energy after a 9 year hiatus. The current lineup includes the three original founders of the band, Andy Hillhouse (guitar, vocals), Cam Wilson (fiddle, vocals), and Amy Stephen (accordion, whistle, vocals), along with two of its longest touring members, Boris Favre (bass, vocals) and Allan Dionne (drums, vocals). Each member has had a varied and distinctive career, and the band continues to bring in influences from their experience in traditional, jazz, and classical music into its danceable, playful, and upbeat "Celtic Funk" style.
