20 July 2017

Re–defining folk music, this Dublin quartet has been drawing critical acclaim and new audiences since their ground–breaking appearance on BBC’s influential Later with Jools Holland.

Fiddle, concertina, uilleann pipes, guitar and stunning vocal harmonies are the hallmark of Lankum [formerly known as Lynched].

The release of their debut album Cold Old Fire was hailed by The Guardian as ‘The most exciting album of traditional Irish song in decades’.
