MAWKIN

 

Folk rebels Mawkin return to the Ustinov Studio, showcasing their new album, Crow, and the sound that has seen them win numerous award nominations and a dedicated following.

 

Fresh off the back of the three-times-BBC-Folk-Award nominated collaboration Mawkin:CausleyMawkin are now forging a bold new sound that strengthens their instrumental roots and ambraces a new, exuberant exploration into the traditional folk canon from the British Isles and beyond.

 

“One of the best instrumental outfits to emerge in recent years” Channel 4

 

Mawkin feature the mesmerising guitar of David Delarre, the carnal beats of drummer and percussionist Lee Richardson underpinning richly textured bass lines from Danny Crump, and a host of wild and emotive melodies from the frenetic fiddling fingers of James Delarre inter-playing with the virtuosic bellowing of Nick Cooke’s melodeon.

MAWKIN are at the Ustinov Studio on Saturday 22nd February. Tickets are on sale now from the Theatre Royal Bath Box Office on 01225 448844, or online at www.theatreroyal.org.uk/ustinov
