Welsh Band Mabon with Lorne MacDougall at Celtic Connections 2011

Performing largely original material infused by diverse musical traditions, the Welsh-based six-piece Mabon will be playing January 15th at 7:30pm at Òran Mór Òran Mór.

Mabon have emerged in recent years among the UK’s most exciting and distinctive folk acts. Scottish, Irish, Welsh, Breton, Galician, Basque and Balkan flavors, buoyed by forceful contemporary rhythms, all feature in their richly emotive sound, delivered with terrific vivacity and verve on accordion, fiddle, flute, guitar, bass and percussion.

The brilliant young Argyllshire piper Lorne MacDougall, who’s featured in line-ups from Grade 1 pipe bands to the Red Hot Chilli Pipers, showcases material from his debut album Hello World, combining traditionally-rooted tunes with deft cross-genre touches.
