KINGS PLACE FESTIVAL 2011
Kings Place, 90 York Way, London N1 9AG
A night dedicated to some of the best in British folk music. Three award-winning acts from the South, the North and the, well, very North – ‘Essex charmers’ Mawkin, ‘Tyneside terrors’ Monster Ceilidh Band and ‘sassy lassies’ The Shee – will be providing you with a night of foot-stompin’, barn-stormin’, high energy folk. So, grab your dancing shoes, crack those glowsticks, pin your ears back and get ready for the twists and turns of a new generation that have been making folk fun.
David Delarre: guitar, mandolin and vocals
James Delarre: fiddle and vocals
Nick Cooke: melodeon and vocals
Danny Crump: bass guitar and vocals
Lee Richardson: drums and percussion
Folk rebels Mawkin come to Kings Place fresh off the back of the three-times BBC Folk Award nominated collaboration Mawkin:Causley. They are now looking to create a bold new sound that strengthens their instrumental roots and embraces a new, exuberant exploration into the traditional folk canon. Expect the Essex drawl of Dave Delarre's vocals and guitar, the club-influenced beats of long-time producer and percussionist Lee Richardson, and a host of wild and emotive melodies from the frenetic fiddling fingers of James Delarre and the virtuosic bellowing of Nick Cooke's melodeon.
"Mawkin temper natural dynamism with genuinely artful arrangements." Colin Irwin, The Observer
