Back in the beginning...


On the back of winning the Melody Maker Rock and Folk Festival, then touring Germany, Steve McDonald split with the band he had at that time and formed the first ever line up of McDonald's Farm back in 1974. After spending some time playing out in Germany, he and the band returned and became a resident band in a venue near Dundee, Scotland, where an under-age Grant Roberts saw him play for the first time. However, it wasn't until 1986, when McDonald's Farm were playing at Tramps nightclub and Steve got left without a bass player, that Grant stepped in, busked the whole set and the rest, as they say, is history! 

This year, Steve and Grant are thrilled to have Cavern resident artist Charlie Skeggs join them on drums!
