Hey everyone! We’ve got a video for a new song ‘Jolly Well Drunk’ plugging away on youtube and Facebook to help promote our new album ‘The Ties That Bind’ which is available for pre-order and immediate download on 16th March 2015.

New Album and New Tour!

Hey Everyone!
We’re very happy to report we will be hitting the road in May on a 12 date tour around the country playing out our new album ‘The Ties That Bind’! Woooohooo!
We’re extremely excited about this new album as its been a year in the making, we’ve been playing out the material to audiences for the past year and have really seen each song (yes thats right, song!) grow organically. So click on our gigs page and see if we are coming to a town near you.

We’ll be posting up pictures, videos, competitions and more on this site and our facebook page – http://www.facebook.com/thisismawkin over the next few months too in anticipation of our biggest tour yet.

Please share the gig dates with anyone you might think enjoy us as we really want to play out to as many people as possible – without you its just an expensive rehearsal.

Thanks for all your support!

New Video of Andro/Lang Stayed Away

This tune set has been going down quite well this tour, so we thought we’d make a video for you all. Andro is a traditional french dance and we found it on the internet somewhere, the second tune Lang Stayed Away is a northumbrian hornpipe and we first heard it played by Nancy Kerr & James Fagan.Hope you like it!
