With a host of rebel rousing folk songs and instrumentals the band modernise traditional folk material with their own touch and have since excited audiences with their artillery of loud, boisterous, foot stomping live sets. Critics of the album suggested that Mawkin might fill the ‘Bellowhead shaped hole’ so it seemed only natural to support them on their farewell tour of 2016 amongst a flurry of key festivals and UK tour dates.
SUPPORT: Stan Harvey
Stan performs American Folk and Country both old and new, drawing on the best from the song writers of the ‘40s and 50’s (Woody Guthrie, Jack Elliott), right up to the present day (Tod Snider, Guy Clark). He accompanies himself on guitar but always chooses songs that stand up on their own without fancy instrumentation. “I like to let the song do the work. A good melodic song with strong vocals is what people remember most.” Stan has been a semi-regular performer at the club over the years with groups such as Trilogy, Jugfolk and Economy Seven while at the same time playing in several Rock, Pop and Country bands during a busy fifty-year musical career.
