It first started just for fun and leisure but with growing potential the band MeadowStrings was formed. Encouraged by Magdalene, the band began playing at occasions such as weddings and private events and even in bars and restaurants.
MeadowStrings is an acoustic band which has a versatile style. The covers performed are mostly traditional local music, classic rock, pop rock and pop ballads, with a touch of modern pop.
From that moment on the band started creating original songs mainly inspired by Mario’s dreams. The first attempt was with the song ‘Phoenix’ but it was never released.
The songs released so far bear the name, Alive and Away which are written in English. After a year, Tbexbex was created which was a hit on the Maltese radio stations.
The band does not seek any style as it varies from one song to another. However, you can notice a touch of Country and Irish pop in the songs released so far.
The song, Niftakar, has helped them achieve their dream in being part of the 16 competitors in such a prestigious festival, L-Għanja tal-Poplu 2021.
On Saturday 7 August, 2021 MeadowStrings performed the song Niftakar lyrics by Mario Camilleri and music by Magdalene Farrugia win the title Best Song writer beside they win the third prize.
