Simon Mayor has appeared many times in Newbury with his much loved band, the Mandolinquents, first at New Greenham and then Arlington Arts. Hailed as ‘one of the world’s great mandolinists’ he is well known for both his virtuosity and wit.

In the wake of the release of his much acclaimed album ‘Carolan’ (fantasias on themes by Turlough O’Carolan 1670-1735), Simon has gathered musicians who played on the studio sessions (Florence Petit: cello, Hilary James: mandobass & vocals) and recruited long-time fellow Mandolinquent Richard Collins (mandolin, guitar, banjo, bass) and Elias Sibley (mandolin, guitar, ukulele) to play a limited number of dates over the autumn/winter season.
