Lankum – Vicar Street, Dublin – 4th & 5th January
Riding high on every discerning critic’s ‘Best Of 2019’ lists, Dublin’s favourite folk miscreants released the epic The Livelong Day back in November. Our own Lucy O’Toole hailed the group as having “re-emerged with a deepened sense of maturity and mortality, culminating in a project of uniquely raw intensity – and undoubtedly one of the finest releases of the year.” Comprising of brothers Ian Lynch (uillean pipes, tin whistle, vocals) and Daragh Lynch (vocals, guitar), alongside Cormac Mac Diarmada (fiddle) and Radie Peat (harmonium, accordion, vocals), Lankum channel a diverse set of influences and histories to create beautifully rare folk music.
