FRI 11 OCT | FIRST PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH | 8PM, £12 / £8 CONC BOOK HERE
Landless are Lily Power, Meabh Meir, Ruth Clinton and Sinead Lynch. Formed in 2013 and based in Dublin and Belfast, they sing unaccompanied traditional songs in immaculate four-part harmony.
A glorious live act to behold, their repertoire features songs of love, death and lamentation, as well as work songs, shape-note hymns and more recently penned folk songs. They have been spellbinding audiences throughout Europe since 2013, releasing their deeply impressive debut album Bleaching Bones in March 2018. Recorded by John ‘Spud’ Murphy (Lankum/Katie Kim/The Jimmy Cake) in a series of reverb-heavy historic churches across Ireland (and the occasional underground tunnel), Bleaching Bones is fit for bursting with atmosphere and mood.
This concert is part of a short Irish tour and will see the group present material from their debut album alongside new material earmarked for their second release (to be recorded in Spring 2020). This special concert will take place in the beautiful setting of Rosemary Street’s ‘First Presbyterian Church’ – the perfect acoustic for the ethereal harmonies of Landless. Support on the night comes from Pete Devlin and James Joys (Ex-Isles) as they perform a special acoustic set. For fans of voice, this concert will be very hard to top. Hope to see you there!
“..when Landless step onstage and open their mouths, the hush in the room is louder than any amplifier hum”
– The Irish Times
“Evocative, celestial, ethereal and, above all, extremely resonant, Landless will be ready to provide a warm embrace and whisk us to windswept, remote, rural Ireland and away from whatever the murky future challenges us with”
