Nominated for ‘Best Group’ and ‘Best Album’ in the 2016 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, Lankum have been described as “the most convincing band to come out of Ireland for years” (The Guardian). Formerly known as Lynched, this traditional four-piece folk group from Dublin combine haunting vocal harmonies with uilleann pipes, concertina, accordion, fiddle and guitar. Although heavily influenced by Irish legends such as Frank Harte, Planxty and The Dubliners, this “connected, rootsy and gutsy” (Mike Harding) group add subtle traces of American music hall, ambient techno and psychedelic folk into the mix.
