Doctor Schwamp, aka Sean MacGloin, leads a high-energy, eclectic five-piece band, combining fiddle, bagpipes, harmonica, bass and drums, trumpet and guitar. Hailing from the Bronx, by way of Cuba, the multi-talented Doctor and his band play a combustible mixture of blues, ska, gypsy and country guaranteed to get you up on your feet.
The Independent newspaper said of Sean, “It is MacGloin’s charisma, energy and musicianship that dazzle. His personality is capable of filling a venue of any size.”
Their highly literate lyrics and carefully crafted songs will take you on a journey where you’ll meet drunks, devils, gold diggers, outlaws and bootleggers to name but a few. Doctor Schwamp and his band have played gigs the length and breadth of the country getting rapturous responses everywhere they go, from the Village Underground in London to the Avalon stage at Glastonbury.
