Lankum (formely Lynched)
Dublin folk miscreants Lankum (formerly Lynched) have been turning heads since first stepping on these shores. Three BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards nominations in one year, sell-out gigs and festival headline slots, widespread mainstream media coverage from Later with Jools… to The Guardian features, there is Lankum love in the air! In theory a traditional folk quartet, combining striking four-part vocal harmonies with uilleann pipes, concertina, fiddle and guitar arrangements, the reality is something else! Crackling with energy and punk spirit, Lankum deliver a hardcore repertoire of classic Traveller ballads, humorous Dublin street-songs, traditional Irish and American dance tunes, and their own firebrand original material. Expect more Lankum love in 2017 with their much-anticipated new album release!
