There are hints of folk, easy jazz, punk, chanson and samba in the music of 'Magdalena & the Mystical Birds'.

Magdalena & the Mystical Birds

Ideal as a festival band, their music is optimistic and uplifting.

Singer-songwriter Magdalena Atkinson is Polish but has made West Dorset her home. She has been wooing local audiences for some time now and has gathered a Facebook following of over a thousand fans.  Her natural songwriting skills make full use of the sounds of the hammer dulcimer, guitar, piano and hand drums.  Having recorded two solo albums with producer Steve Jones, she joined forces with two other musicians to record a third album from which emerged a new band - 'Magdalena and the Mystical Birds'.


Although the new album is still a project in progress, they have decided to showcase the songs. Ideal as a festival band, their music is optimistic and uplifting. Because they enjoy live performance and audience participation, their appeal is easy and uncomplicated.


Magdalena has also worked extensively with drum workshops, Shakti Dance and inspirational gatherings, always engaging well with her audience.  With the band, her music has moved more towards rhythmic and anthemic themes.

Their stage presence is light and playful.

Steve Jones (formerly of Heron and Mungo Jerry) is on keyboards, Drew Crow Star (glam rock punk poet) is on bass, and on percussion is Darren Coleman (leader of Blackdown Samba).

Individually, they have performed at international festivals, theatres, folk clubs, street theatre, and given their time to care homes and disability groups. Collectively, they have played to both audiences of thousands and to small intimate gatherings.


Drawing on their musical backgrounds, there are sometimes hints of easy jazz, punk, folk, chanson and samba in the music. With something of the early '60s festival exuberance about them, their stage presence is light and playful.


'Magdalena and the Mystical Birds' is a perfect band for the festivals and gatherings showcasing new music or wherever original positive vibes are welcomed and appreciated! Their enthusiasm & playfulness is contagious so just have them on board!
