PRESENTED BY DOROTTYA TOTH

The members of the band are related to Margaret Island with lots of memories. The idea of the first song has come up during a walk on the island.
Margaret Island was formed in the fall of 2013 in Budapest. Their decision was to play acoustic-folk-pop music which is a colorful patch in the hungarian music scene. The lyrics are mainly written in hungarian, but there are english translations as well.
The trio consists of Viki Lábas, Kristóf Törőcsik and Bálint Füstös. The songs are influenced by the western folk-music (Mumford and sons, Passenger) with a mixture of hungarian folk elements, thanks to Viki's musical background. They love busking on the streets and they like to play music spontaneously, so they usually perform in a different line-up.

Their debut concert was held in Budapest on the ship A38 which was voted best bar of the world in an internet poll by Lonely Planet in 2012.

They released their first music video in early 2014.

Interesting fact that the hungarian songwriter-legend János Bródy has written a hungarian version to the song called „Nem voltál jó”.
