ARTIST PROFILE

Mabon

High energy six piece Celtic folk band from South Wales led by accordionist Jamie Smith. The band are a popular live act on the arts centre/festival circuit for their spirited live performances.

Iolo Whelan of the band has sent us this new updated profile of the revamped group;

You may be aware of the band’s developent this year, or if not, you may
have guessed by now!  Mabon has disbanded, and a new band, under the new
title “Jamie Smith’s MABON” is picking up where Mabon left off. There is
one personnel change in the form of Adam Rhodes on bouzouki, who
replacesDerek Smith on guitar. Another development in the band’s sound is the
inclusion of some vocal tracks to augment the existing instrumental
repertoire.
