about

****

An unlikely union between mischievous young Essex band Mawkin and Devon's outstanding singer Jim Causley, this exuberant debut – largely constructed around emotive warlike themes – establishes them as Brit folk's brightest new young guns, merging jazz nuances with driving fiddle/melodeon fuelled rhythms. Causley's inviting voice does the rest.

- Colin Irwin, The Telegraph

"Expectations are high: they were nominated for an award for best group even before the release of this, their debut CD. It lives up to the hype"
-- **** 4 stars (FT)

"Genuinely artful arrangements - mighty, provocative, yet admirably considered" -- **** 4 stars (Observer Music Monthly)

"Remarkably assured - such conviction and a true sense of their music's history" -- ***** 5 Stars (Uncut)

"Supremely confident - a serious album, of considerable weight" -- fROOTS

"Unconditionally Mighty" -- **** 4 stars (Mojo)

Mawkin:Causley deserve to be up there with Bellowhead as heroes of the new folk revival
-- Robin Deneslow - The Guardian
