The National Concert Hall's Imagining Ireland series continues with a live-streamed show from Junior Brother on October 20 – during which he'll be joined by special guest Ian Lynch from Lankum.
An idiosyncratic and richly lyrical singer-songwriter, Junior Brother has enjoyed a landmark few years. Since being chosen as one of RTÉ's Rising Irish Stars of 2018, the Kerry native has toured with The Proclaimers, Lankum, Glen Hansard and The Murder Capital. His debut album, Pull The Right Rope, was released back in 2019 to critical acclaim – earning a Choice Music Prize nomination for Album of the Year, as well as two nominations for the RTÉ Radio 1 Folk Awards, for Best Folk Album and Best Emerging Folk Act.
For this special performance he is joined by Ian Lynch, a singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist best known as a member of Lankum. The folk group’s two most recent albums, Between the Earth and Sky (2017) and The Livelong Day (2019), received serious critical acclaim – with the latter winning this year's Choice Music Prize. In addition to his work with Lankum, Ian hosts a monthly radio show Fire Draw Near.
The concert will be available to tickets holders for 24 hours following the performance. Tickets for the stream are €7, and are available exclusively via DICE.fm now.
