Lankum are a four-piece traditional folk group from Dublin, Ireland, who combine distinctive four-part vocal harmonies with arrangements of uilleann pipes, concertina, Russian accordion, fiddle and guitar. Their repertoire spans humorous Dublin music-hall ditties and street-songs, classic ballads from the Traveller tradition, traditional Irish and American dance tunes, and their own original material.

"The most convincing folk band to come out of Ireland in years" The Guardian
"The most exciting album of traditional Irish song in decades" TradConnect
"A sure contender for any Irish album of the year lists" Songlines
