After surrendering a return to Ireland, the two musicians found themselves – entirely by chance – living 500 meters apart, with an abundance of time on their hands.
In March this year, Radie Peat was on an extensive tour of America with Lankum, where Katie Kim had relocated in 2019. More recently, Kim opened for the band at their sold out Mercury Lounge show in NY. It turned out to be one of the last live gigs either would play in 2020.
Armed with an abundance of time and suprisingly living around the corner from one another for the pandemic, Peat and Kim have joined forces to create an exclusive audio-visual collaborative streaming event. Alongside drummer/singer Eleanor Myler (Percolator), sonic wizard John Spud Murphy (producer of Lankum's 'The Livelong Day'), and award-winning film/performance/sound artist Vicky Langan occupying the visual field, this promises to be a unique collision of concepts for this one-off performance.
Comprising new arrangements of original material, folk songs and reimagined contemporary songs, this performance brings together elements of gothic folk, ethereal doom, the melding of intricate harmonies and combined raw vocal power.
This exclusive performance will go out as a live stream on Nollaig na mBan on Wednesday 6th January, 2021 at 8pm GMT. Tickets, which are on sale now, will allow viewers to stream the performance for a limited 48 hours.
