Watch the acclaimed Galway group performing live from Limerick tonight.
Following the release of their stunning debut single, 'Bare Feet On Grass', in November, The Raines are back – with a gig streaming live from Dolan's Warehouse tonight, January 21, at 7.30pm.
The folk group, featuring the remarkable talents of Juliana Erkkonen, Yvonne Tiernan and Ruth Dillon, first met on Inis Óirr, and have since built up a reputation for their stunning blend of original and traditional folk songs – combining sensitive vocals, gifted songwriting and highly accomplished musicianship.
