A celebration of original, Interceltic music from an award-winning band!
An epilogue to the hugely successful release of their new album ‘The Space Between’ and the accompanying 40-date tour, MABON return to the Isle of Man for the first time in over two years. The band was so disappointed not to fit the Centenary Centre into their recent tour that they decided to put on this special one-off concert to make up for it! They’ll be performing lots of material from the new album as well as some old favourites. It will be their first concert since accordionist and singer Jamie Smith moved to Peel and also the first with their brand new line-up, with guitarist Paul Rogers replacing Adam Rhodes. Like Jamie, Paul is a welshman living on the island and will be well known to anyone involved in Manx music and language.
One of the most highly accomplished and critically acclaimed Interceltic/World roots bands in Britain today, MABON have built their reputation on their energy and dynamism, outstanding original compositions and virtuoso performances. They are rightly hailed as one of Britain’s ‘must see’ live acts, their music travelling beyond borders to explore the forms and styles of the Celtic traditions and work them anew. They recently won ‘Best Group’ at the Spiral Earth Awards and ‘Best Live Band’ in Germany at the Eiserner Eversteiner Awards. Stand by for infectious, life-affirming music by the spade-full!
