Mawkin:Causley – The Awkward Recruit

2009 Navigator Records

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.
