Kim So Ra: A Sign Of Rain - 7:30pm

Multi-award winning Korean percussionist and composer Kim So Ra is one of the most skilled and prominent janggu (Korean double-headed drum) players in the world. Inspired by nature, her creative, charismatic and modern performances are rooted in traditional Honam Province Jeongeup folk music. In “A Sign Of Rain,” she tries to capture the sound of rain with her ensemble, creating a spectrum of emotions through the interplay of percussion, wind instruments, Korean zither, and projections.

Lankum - 8:30pm

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.

New album The Livelong Day, released on 25 October 2019 on Rough Trade Records, blends alternative folk and psychedelia to cement their reputation as one of the most talked about groups to emerge from Ireland in decades.

Born of years criss-crossing Dublin's folk and experimental scenes, their previous two albums Cold Old Fire (2013, recorded under former name Lynched) and Rough Trade debut Between The Earth and Sky (2017) breathed new life into ancient/modern rituals with urban punk fervour, rural psycho-geography and, underpinning it all, the eternal drone of the uilleann pipes.

Thanks to our funders and supporters for making the 2019 Global Roots Festival possible!
