Jamie Smith’s Mabon at the Centenary Centre




Formerly known as ‘Mabon’, the award-wining Welsh band will be bringing their octane fuelled Celtic musical extravaganza to the Isle of Man on the 19th November, when they play at the Centenary Centre in Peel as part of their UK tour.

There are plenty of reasons to stop off on the Island, with two band members married to Manx girls Rachel Pressley and Gráinne Joughin, and the first appearance on the Isle of Man of musician Adam Rhodes (member of local band King Chiaullee) in the band’s line-up playing bouzouki.  

The band’s vibrant instrumental reputation is now consolidated by a selection of songs penned by front man Jamie Smith, although their exuberant, irresistible Celtic dance music continues to dominate their performance.

Starting at 8.00pm tickets are priced at £12 from Thompson Travel, Celtic Gold, Peter Norris Music and Shakti Man.
