Lankum at The Northwall Arts Centre: May 24th at 8pm

Lankum (Lynched) are a four-piece traditional folk group from Dublin, Ireland, who combine distinctive four-part vocal harmonies with arrangements of uilleann pipes, concertina, Russian accordion, fiddle and guitar. Their repertoire spans humorous Dublin music-hall ditties and street-songs, classic ballads from the Traveller tradition, traditional Irish and American dance tunes, and their own original material.

The release of their album Cold Old Fire and a subsequent appearance on the BBC’s Later… with Jools Hollandcemented their reputation as a band that successfully crosses genres. They launched their hugely anticipated new album Between the Earth and Sky on 27th October 2017 on prestigious Rough Trade Records.

 6pm Fairport Convention 

Fairport Convention formed in 1967 is widely regarded as one of the most influential bands in the English Folk Rock movement, attracting critical acclaim throughout its long career. The band won a coveted BBC Lifetime Achievement Award and Radio 2 listeners voted Fairport’s groundbreaking album Liege & Lief “The Most Influential Folk Album of All Time” developing a distinctively English identity to rock music which helped awaken much wider interest in traditional music in general. Throughout the intervening five decades (and numerous changes of line-up) the band's passion for live performance has never wavered.
