Katie Kim and Radie Peat for Nollaig na mBan

Wednesday, 6 January 2021, 8.00pm

Katie Kim and Radie Peat of Lankum have joined forces to create an exclusive audio visual collaborative streaming event. Together with drummer/singer Eleanor Myler (Percolator), sonic wizard John Spud Murphy (producer of RTÉ Choice Music Prize award winning album The Livelong Day by Lankum), and the renowned sound artist/filmmaker Vicky Langan occupying the visual field, this promises to be a unique collision of concepts for this one off performance.

In March this year Peat was on an extensive tour of the US with Lankum, where Kim had relocated in 2019 and more recently opened for the band at their sold out Mercury Lounge show in NY. This turned out to be one of the last live gigs either would play in 2020. After surrendering a return to Ireland, the two found themselves by chance living 500 meters apart with an abundance of time on their hands and a hunger to create. This collaborative project is the result of that time.

Comprising new arrangements of original material, folk songs and reimagined contemporary songs, this performance brings together elements of gothic folk, ethereal doom, the melding of intricate harmonies and combined raw vocal power.

This exclusive performance will go out as a live stream on Nollaig na mBan on Wednesday 6th January 2021 at 8pm GMT and viewers will be available to stream the performance for a limited 48 hours.
