Miss Mabon at your peril! For the past few years these high octane festival favourites from Wales have been fizzing, frothing and fermenting into the intoxicatingly heady brew they are today.

Shades of Shooglenifty and Peatbog Faeries there may be but Mabon’s music is self styled, singular and toe-tappingly good – an insatiable blend of world music, Celtic roots and rabble rousing funk folk. One minute you’ll think you’re in a Breton bistro, next there are echoes of klezmer, and then they perfectly capture what it says on the can for fusion tracks like “A Hungarian in Brittany” and “Gower Flotsam in Bordeaux”!

Led by the indecently talented  accordionist and tunes meister Jamie Smith, this six- piece band also features Young Scottish Musician of the  Year finalist Calum Stewart on wooden flute and Ruth Angell ( Rainbow Chasers, Lark Rise Band) on fiddle.

Freewheeling through a frenzied repertoire of feelgood tunes the band is also capable of slowing down the tempo for mellower, moving numbers. But not for long!

A knock out in Europe and beyond, they have played castles in Poland, forest parks in Italy and woven their magic in Mexico, Canada and Australia.  Back on home turf they will showcase numbers from their acclaimed “huge grin of an album” OK Pewter. 

So stand by for infectious, energising, life affirming music in spades. The only problem will be how to stop yourself leaping out of your seat or just when to stop dancing. Prepare to party!
