Mad Jocks & Englishmen

In Mad Jocks & Englishmen there were, going by the group's name and repertoire, at least two Scots strong. The line-up was Andy Brownlie (lead vocals, guitar, mandolin), George Gallagher (lead vocals, guitar), Nick Weston (banjo, mandolin, banjolin), with various supporting players over the years. They were based in Birmingham, and recorded at least six albums, listed below. More information on their official web site: www.madjocksandenglishmen.co.uk.

Any more information about the group would be gratefully received: email me. Some of their recorded output is detailed below.
