LANKUM at Quiet Lights festival 2019

8pm, Saturday 23rd November 2019
Live at St Luke's, Cork
Tickets €25
Islander presents the second edition of ‘Quiet Lights’, an exciting new small-scale festival with a big heart, which aims to shine a light on the new wave of Irish and International folk, traditional, and experimental talent that are quietly forging new paths, recollecting old tales, and making new stories.

From Friday 22nd to Sunday 24th November, music from the heart and for the soul will fill Cork city's nooks, crannies, chapels, and bars. As part of the festival, Lankum will perform at Live at St Luke's, Saturday 23rd November.

The Dublin based four-piece present a new live show celebrating their much-anticipated 3rd album which will be released on Rough Trade Records October 25th. 

Listen to their single ‘The Wild Rover’ from the new album here:
Lankum have an alchemical ability to combine traditional folk roots with contemporary undercurrents to forge music that is dark, mysterious and transcendental. Comprising brothers Ian Lynch (uillean pipes, tin whistle, vocals), 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 a beautifully rare thing: a songbook from and for the people.
Born of years criss-crossing Dublin’s folk and experimental scenes, their two albums Cold Old Fire (2013, recorded under former name Lynched) and Rough Trade debut Between The Earth and Sky (2017) breathe new life into ancient/modern rituals with urban punk fervour, rural psycho-geography and, underpinning it all, the eternal drone of the uilleann pipes.
‘An object lesson in how to perform old songs in new ways’ The Independent
‘The most convincing folk band to come out of Ireland in years’ The Guardian
