Jamie Smith’s Mabon
2014 SPIRAL EARTH AWARD WINNER
The UK’s foremost and finest exponents of original, InterCeltic music featuring vocals, accordion, fiddle, bouzouki, bass and drums. All are subtly exploited by five dynamic, accomplished musicians, working traditional forms and styles anew in songs and melodies by composer Jamie Smith.
The energetic sound of jigs and reels; a graceful mazurka, an ecstatic muiñera; a haunting Welsh-language love-song or a driving, sing-along, fantasy epic – all are given the same refreshing, creative treatment as the band dances skilfully along the borders between Celtic heritage and contemporary sound.
These young, virtuosic musicians are already veterans of the world music stage. Their latest album ‘Windblown’ has seen them rise to a new level of achievement and critical acclaim. From Cambridge and Cropredy to Celtic Connections; from Wales’ Llangollen Eisteddfod to the global stage of WOMAD; on UK tours, in European festivals and in dozens of countries worldwide – Jamie Smith’s Mabon receive constant praise for both their live and recorded work.
