Mabon - Again!

saw Derek, Jamie and new flautist recruit Calum from Welsh folk-prog outfit Mabon at the Bell in Caerleon - consummate brillance, although Derek thought they'd lacked a little warmth. Pshaw!

The gulf between amateurs and pros is sometimes so enormous... these guys are the dog's. Derek's a fan of PFM and so is used to prog rock dynamics and harmonic devices, and it was, and is, all there. You could fill in the triads and harmonies with mellotron or Hammond organ in so many places, although Derek's rhyhtm guitar is pretty fine.

Great band- catch 'em.
