Since their formation in 2002 three-times-BBC-Folk-Award nominees Mawkin have grown into one of brit-folks brightest new guns: a blistering 5-piece band fusing folk, blues and rock, they are no strangers to the cutting edge of the contemporary music scene while still reigning all the verve and mystique of ancient folk music traditions from across the globe. Throughout this album launch tour expect to hear rousing songs of rebellion from David Delarre (Eliza Carthy. Tred) underpinned by the frenetic fiddling fingers of James Delarre (Saul Rose & James Delarre, Topette) and virtuosic bellowing of Nick Cooke’s melodeon (Kate Rusby, Jim Moray) held together by a solid rhythm section with Danny Crump on Bass and Lee Richardson on Drums. Add a host of wild and emotive traditional melodies and you have Mawkin.
