Mellowtone with Dave McTague (September ’18)

Dave McTague


A laid back exploration of songs and songwriters.

With well over a decade of parties, gigs and showcases under their belt, Mellowtone have presented songwriters and bands from the worlds of folk, blues, roots and so much more.

Mellowtone Records progresses the mission further; seeking out music with Soul. Magic. Alchemy. And bringing it to the wider world.

Hosted by Mellowtone founder and captain of the ship, Dave McTague, “The Mellowtone Show” is a two-hour exploration of songs and songwriters… Inspirations, legends, acts from upcoming shows, and of course artists from the label.

Expect everything from folk, blues and roots, to funk, jazz, reggae and soul… from the obvious to the obscure.
