Fresh off the heels from a blistering support set on Bellowheads 2016 farewell tour and following a string of summer appearances at Cambridge, Grinagog, Towersey and Sidmouth Festivals, come and join Mawkin in celebrating their long awaited follow up album to The Ties That Bind.

In 2015 Mawkin delivered their self-produced and critically acclaimed album ‘The Ties That Bind’. Their ‘unapologetically energetic’ approach and DIY ethic surprised critics, fans and welcomed new audience members describing them as a ‘modern day Fairport’. With a host of rebel rousing folk songs and instrumentals the band modernise traditional folk material with their own touch and have since excited audiences with their artillery of loud, boisterous, foot stomping live sets. Critics of the album suggested that Mawkin might fill the ‘Bellowhead shaped hole’.

The band members have a wealth of other musical experience between them with brothers David and James’s involvement with Eliza Carthy and Norma Waterson, Jim Moray, Topette!, and the two providing stand-in support for members of Bellowhead. Nick Cooke is Kate Rusby and False Lights’ melodeon player, is a professional mastering engineer and has worked with some of the most iconic producers in our lifetime. Lee Richardson, who’s former background was in dance music, is an award winning producer of TV, advertising and trailer music.

James Delarre: Vocals, Violin; David Delarre: Vocals, Guitar; Nick Cooke: Melodeon; Danny Crump: Bass; Lee Richardson: Drums.

'Until now Mawkin have perhaps never quite made the leap to the first rank of folk outfits. This swaggering set should change that!’
