Lankum are a four-piece traditional folk group from Dublin, Ireland, who combine distinctive vocal harmonies with arrangements of uilleann pipes, whistles, concertina, accordion, fiddle and guitar. Their repertoire spans humorous Dublin music-hall ditties and street-songs, classic ballads from the Traveller tradition, traditional Irish and American dance tunes alongside their own original material.
“The most convincing folk band to come out of Ireland in years” The Guardian.
“A sure contender of most exciting album of traditional Irish song in decades” Songlines
“Anarchic, yet connected, rootsy and gutsy – I love their music”-Mike Harding
