2017 BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award Winners Josie Duncan and Pablo Lafuente are a vocal/guitar duo like no other. On vocals and guitar in Gaelic, Scots and English, their music is a tradition tour in which centuries-old ballads connect with Gaelic Puirt à Beul (music of the mouth, literally), songs from the mines and cotton mills and original writing.
Matt McGinn is a singer, songwriter and producer from the foothills of the Mourne Mountains in Hilltown, Co. Down. In 2018 he released his third full length studio album, “The End of the Common Man” to great acclaim for both its musicality and strong social message. In May of 2018 his music documentary ‘Lessons of War’ was premiered at the Belfast Film Festival. It features anti-war songs penned by Matt and some of the North’s finest writers, and includes performances from Matt and artists from areas around the world affected by conflict.
