Jamie Smith's Mabon

Jamie Smith's Mabon is a band that draws readily on the vast range of its members' influences, exploring the music that gives them - and their listeners - pleasure. The band has performed at WOMAD, Lowender Peran, Womex, Fairport's Cropredy Convention, Celtic Connections, and the Festival Interceltique de Lorient, as well as their own home festival, Cwlwm Celtaidd. They can hold the largest stage with their exuberant and exhilarating verve, but also with moments of great delicacy, as they explore the full dynamic range.

Accordionist and singer Jamie Smith provides a good number of his own compositions for the band. With Jamie in the front line is Oliver Wilson-Dickson on fiddle, Adam Rhodes on bouzouki, with Matthew Downer on bass and Iolo Whelan on percussion.

The band has a strong Manx connection, with Adam Rhodes having been a member of King Chiaullee, and Jamie and Iolo having 'married in' to the Island!

The Brim

The Brim is a Cornish duo which combines the guitar playing of Jamie Toms with the accordion sound of Alan Pengelly. They play an eclectic mix of both contemporary and traditional Cornish music, including their own compositions, along with Celtic/folk music from regions outside of Cornwall. Alan and Jamie have built upon their distinct compatibility as a duo to help develop and establish a new and dynamic sound, drawing upon elements of folk, jazz and other genres. The Brim have performed at a number of festivals, including Cwlwm Celtaidd, Shennaghys Jiu, the Pan Celtic Festival (Ireland) and Festival Interceltique de Lorient.

The Brim’s third member is their caller, Julian Whiting, at the helm, guiding people through dances in a fun and friendly style. Julian and Alan were two of the original members of Cornish music and dance group ‘Asteveryn’, 1998-2010, and have worked together at a number of festivals and events, throughout Cornwall and elsewhere.
