Double bill: Lankum (IRL) + Flemish Folk Caravan
Dublin-based four-piece folk group Lankum has drawn inspiration from traditional folktales for their wonderful debut album full of special instruments and vocal harmonies. They were nominated in three categories at the BBC Folk Awards 2018: Best Group, Best Album and Best Original Track. In their musical universe, they combine traditional folk music with punk influences and a lot of Irish humour. The legendary Dubliners are never far away …
Flemish Folk Caravan
Ready! Set! Go! The Flemish Folk Caravan is winning the hearts of many folk fans around the world with their public image of a cool rock band without a drummer or bass player. Wör and Trio Dhoore are two up-and-coming bands with a novel approach to traditional music. Their repertoire may differ, but their motive is the same: put Flemish folk on the world map with a new sound that appeals to young and old alike.
