Dublin-based Lankum is the type of band you never knew you were searching for. A group of individuals united by a gang mentality whose close vocal harmonies, instrumental interplay and dramatic storytelling pin you to the seat and revive the spirit. They show that folk music can be angry, progressive and is still a vital force today.
Comprising brothers Ian Lynch (vocals, uillean pipes, tin whistle, concertina), Daragh Lynch (vocals, guitar) alongside Cormac Mac Diarmada (fiddle, vocals) and Radie Peat (vocals, harmonium, concertina, tin whistle), Lankum channels a diverse set of influences and histories to create a beautifully rare thing: a songbook from and for the people.
We are particularly delighted that they have agreed to be the opening act for our first Tradfest as they are one of our absolute favourite bands, and four of the best people we know.
Presented in association with The Queen’s Hall.
+ Special guest Brìghde Chaimbeul
