The Georgia Mudcats "Old-time Stringband Music with a Southern flair"

The Georgia Mudcats bring you a program of Appalachian string-band music, flatland country blues, gospel music and traditional songs from all over the South. With the advent of radio the music of the Appalachian Mountains and the rural South came to town. It didn't stay, as it yearned to be home on the porch, amongst gentler surroundings. The Georgia Mudcats learned their music from friends, relatives and peers; on porches, in living rooms and kitchens all over the country. We'd like to share our music with you. The Georgia Mudcats are available for weddings, community festivals, square dances, family reunions, Barbeques, private parties and other occasions at which traditional music is appreciated! We know the music of the Georgia Mudcats will help make your event a success! The Georgia Mudcats are Patrick Shields, guitar, John Grimm, fiddle, Lisa Deaton, bass. Vocals, Tom Ryan, banjo. Please call or email us for a promotional package and/or information on the availability of the Georgia Mudcats for your next event, party, or square dance. We can arrange for a square dance caller and our rates are competitive! The Mudcat's CD release, "Across the Big Pond", is a compilation the group played on a tour of Northern Ireland. Their latest CD "Barefoot in the Henhouse and Other Southern Delights" features their current lineup and is chalk full of fine old time tunes and ballads.

The Georgia Mudcats
Barefoot in the Henhouse and Other Southern Delights
Their Latest CD

Highly recommended collection of old time tunes with some of the genre's finest players. Old time fiddle, clawhammer banjo, bass and guitar.

In the channels of old time music there are those who bide their time, picking throught the morsels that come along, snagging the very best. When a good song or tune slips by headed to the surface for fame and fortune, the Georgia Mudcats are there, working the murky depths, foraging through the flotsam of old time music for the best tunes and songs as they drift by. There are flashier bands, but you won't find one whose feet are more firmly planted in the primordial ooze of Southern old time music. They know the music from the bottom up, and have carved a niche that forsakes flash and glamor for a soulful song or hot tune sung and played to a well timed groove.
