Launching their new album Down Among the Dead Men and following their support with Bellowhead; Mawkin return with rebel rousing folk songs and instrumentals, modernising traditional material with their own touch.
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.
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.
A gutsy re-working of traditional songs
