Biography

There are (at least) three bands with the band name ‘Bodega’: one, a group of talented young folk musicians from the Highlands and Islands of Scotland, UK;another a serious force in the jamband scene from Philadelphia, USA., and the third are a now defunct band from Cadillac, Mi., USA

Bodega (1)
Formed in March 2005, Bodega are a young folk band who all hail from the Highlands and Islands of Scotland. Gillian Chalmers (Fraserburgh), Ross Couper (Shetland), Tia Files (Oban), Norrie MacIver (Isle of Lewis) and June Naylor (Isle of Skye) met while attending The National Centre of Excellence in Traditional Music in Plockton, Scotland. They also attended the High School there.

The band released their debut album, entitled ‘Bodega’, in 2006. The album features their trademark mixture of both traditional and ‘new’ folk songs (including a cover of Bob Dylan’s Wagon Wheel), including several in Gaelic, along with instrumental sets of both traditional tunes with the band’s own compositions.

Bodega won the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award 2005/6. The band have since toured the UK appearing at several major festivals including Cambridge Folk Festival, Heb Celt and Fairport’s Cropredy Convention, as well as performing in France, Italy and America.

Bodega (2)
Formed in the Spring of 2006, Bodega is quickly becoming known as a serious young force in the jamband scene. Members Nick Bockrath (guitar), Peter Madonna (guitar), Steve Lyons (upright/electric bass), and Jeremy Worthington (drums/percussion) shared a vision of creating a group with an emphasis on danceable grooves, developed compositions, and positive vibes.

    My "Boddega" tracks, despite being properly named files, somehow get transferred into last.fm as "Bodega" instead. 23/24 of them anyway. Would love to know how to correct this.

Amazing castle you've got going there..... didn't qualify to look at your church/castle/funeral/doom/metal..... totally dominating cathedral of the evil and curious santa claus of the damned.... HAPPY NEW YEAR...!!!!!!

    You are correct. And according to the FAQ, there is no way to separate them. Lets hope last.fm finds a solution for this.

    There are two bands called Bodega. The bio here is for one band, the pics for another. And the top tracks are for both. Thought I should warn others!
