Mawkin Say Farewell at Priddy

Bitter sweet news – Mawkin are breaking up – but will play theier last gig ever at Priddy.

The band, whose muscular English folk rock has won thgem fans across the nation have decided to call it a day as members see increasing demand with other projects. It’s a massive honour for us to host this significant event and the band sent us this message:

“This will be our last ever Mawkin performance.

“We’ve had a really great time being Mawkin in all its various incarnations over the years; starting out as a trio and driving to Dartmoor Folk Festival crammed into a Citroën 2CV, to the years of playing good ol instrumental English folk before it was fashionable (!) with Alex Goldsmith, then a few years fronted by Devonshire folk god Jim Causley where we got our kit off for fRoots Magazine and picked up a few BBC Radio 2 Folk Award nominations.

“Finally we settled in as the band we know and love now, performing on BBC1, ITV, supporting Bellowhead on their final farewell tour to 40,000 people and releasing two awesome folk rock albums.

“It’s been an amazing journey. We’d like to say a big thank you to our friends and family who have supported us over the years – come and have a dance to our final show!”

For old times’ sake, here’s one of their best videos
