One of the most highly accomplished and critically acclaimed Celtic roots music bands in Britain today, Jamie Smith’s Mabon have built their reputation on their exhilarating live performances and deftly worked recordings.

Mabon’s distinctive, infectious and multi-award winning music explores the styles of the Celtic traditions and works them anew; the music is self-styled, singular and toe-tappingly good – an irresistible blend of world music and Celtic roots, filled with energy, joy and passion.

Combining traditional instruments and a modern rhythm section, the five piece band of dazzling musicians perform outstanding original compositions, all given the same refreshing, creative treatment, as the band dances along the borders between Celtic heritage and contemporary sound.

With a worldwide role call of performances at major World, Celtic and Folk festivals and huge tours already behind them, Mabon’s mission to weave anew the invisible and ancient strands of Celtic culture succeeds on a multitude of levels.
