See this double headline showcase

Jamie Smith’s Mabon and Maz O’Connor will be performing in the Darwin Suite at Derby’s Assembly Rooms on Thursday, February 6, from 8pm.

Jamie Smith’s MABON (JSM) and Maz O Connor are two of the most highly accomplished and critically acclaimed artists in Britain today. This double headline show captures the depth and breadth of the two musical cultures – Celtic and English. Both have won plaudits for their live shows.

Their live show is renowned for its energy and dynamism; their inter-celtic music travelling beyond borders to explore the forms and styles of the Celtic traditions and work them anew.

Maz (here performing as a trio) has progressed rapidly up the ranks of young ‘must see’ performers, having been nominated for a 2013 BBC Radio 2 Award, awarded a BBC/EFDSS performing arts fellowship and spent the summer performing music written by Laura Marling with the RSC in Stratford. Support will be provided by Chloe Bix, a Devon-based singer/songwriter.

Tickets are £15 (NUS and under 16s £11), available on 01332 255800.
