Jamie Smith’s modern folk band MABON

Exhilarating, just exhilarating – a band that performs with such enjoyment, excitement, style and wit – a show of originality, energy and integrity” Jun Lin Yeoh, Rainforest World Music Festival, Borneo

One of the most highly accomplished and critically acclaimed Celtic roots music bands based in Britain today, Jamie Smith’s MABON have built their reputation on their exhilarating live performances and deftly worked recordings.

MABON’s distinctive, infectious and multi-award winning music explores the styles of the Celtic traditions and works them anew; the music is self-styled, singular and toe-tappingly good – an irresistible blend of world music and Celtic roots, filled with energy, joy and passion.

With a roll-call of performances at major World, Celtic and Folk festivals across the world, the five piece band of dazzling musicians perform outstanding original compositions, all given the same refreshing, creative treatment, as the band dances along the borders between Celtic heritage and contemporary sound.

Jamie Smith’s MABON have always been a band for whom live performance is the ultimate
expression of their art, and their ability to excite and enliven a live audience is peerless.

Sedbergh Artisan Market

Our sixth season of markets continues with the June edition. The market has grown over the past twelve months and now runs along all of Main Street from St. Andrew’s church gate to the Information and Book Centre. You will find the best crafts, made by the stall holders themselves and delicious food locally produced by the traders. New for this year, there will be hot food. We are working to make the market more of a family occasion with competitions, street magic and games for kids, run by Settlebeck School, in St. Andrew’s church yard. The town’s shops and cafes will be open as usual as a perfect complement to the stalls.
