The Bath Festival: Lankum at Komedia
The Bath Festival: Lankum
Lankum are one of the most talked about bands to come out of Ireland in decades. This Dublin four-piece combine distinctive four-part vocal harmonies, with arrangements of uilleann pipes, concertina, accordion, fiddle and guitar. Their instrumental interplay and dramatic storytelling pin you to your seat and revive the spirit. They will be supported by guitar and banjo player Gwenifer Raymond who plays her own moody and often manic original American Primitive styled compositions, drawn from the roots music of Mississippi and Appalachia.
‘A younger, darker Pogues with more astonishing power, Lankum deserve to get even bigger.’ – The Guardian
