Dublin’s finest folk miscreantsLankum return to Belfast for a show at the Empire on October 24 ahead of the release of their third album through Rough Trade.
Combining four-part harmonies with tradition instruments that include uilleann pipes, concertina, Russian accordian, fiddle and guitar, the group have an incredible knack for melding traditional folk with contemporary underground influences - black metal & drone, for example - to create something truly transcendental. Their sets give and take from the peoples' songbook - listen to our Irish song of 2017, the hauntingly poignant 'What Will We Do When We Have No Money?' - and read CJ Mc Canney’s review of 2017's Between The Earth and Sky here.
Supporting is of Ireland's foremost rising talents, Kerry contemporary folk singer-songwriter Ronan Kealy, aka Junior Brother. 'The Back of Her' was one of our Irish tracks of 2018, and spellbinding debut album Pull The Right Rope is a strong contender for Irish album of the year.
Tickets are available from Ticketweb, priced £16.50. Doors open at 8pm.
