Folk rebels Mawkin will be at The Beehive this Friday

The Beehive, in Honiton, is set to host folk rebels Mawkin who will be showcasing their new album ‘Down Among The Dead Men’

The album follows their critically acclaimed The Ties That Bind.

Widely regarded as an explosive return to form, the album led the band to support Bellowhead on their final farewell tour in 2016, playing to more than 40,000 people in 20 days.

This latest release is a continuation of that live, edgy sound.

Since reforming in 2012, Mawkin has grown into one of Brit-folk’s brightest new guns: Rousing songs of rebellion are sung by brothers David Delarre (Eliza Carthy, Tred) and fiddler James Delarre (Saul Rose and James Delarre, Topette) all underpinned by Nick Cooke’s melodeon (Kate Rusby) with Danny Crump on bass and Lee Richardson on drums.

The gig takes place this Friday (November 24), at The Beehive, Honiton, starting at 8pm.

Tickets: £10 adv/£12 door. Call 01404 384050 or visit www.beehivehoniton.co.uk
