Ye Vagabonds are brothers Brían and Diarmuid Mac Gloinn, who grew up playing music together around their hometown of Carlow, a small town in thesouth east of Ireland. After moving to Dublin in 2012, they quickly became a staple of the live music and session scene in Ireland,
playing their own original songs as well as folk songs from Ireland, Scotland, England and America.

Following two critically acclaimed studio albums, Ye Vagabonds released their third album, Nine Waves, on Rough Trade’s River Lea label in May 2022. Nine Waves was recorded in the Dublin Mountains at Hellfire Studios, produced by John ‘Spud’ Murphy (whose previous work includes records by black midi, Lankum and caroline). The album features 11 tracks of both traditional and original songs and tunes.
Nine Waves follows the duo’s standalone single I’m A Rover, which won them an RTÉ Radio One Folk Award for Best Traditional Folk Track. Ye Vagabonds were also named Best Folk Group for the second time at the 2021 ceremony, where they hold the record for most awarded artists.

“A remarkable album” – Songlines
“Joyous” – Uncut
“A cavern of delights… A labyrinthine treasure trove” – The Irish Times
“They remind me of my first days at ‘Les Cousins’ in Soho in 1965… Ye Vagabonds are a modern expression of a tradition that is truly robust and important to these islands.” Roy Harper

Support on the night is Dani Larkin

Beguiling, intense, driven folk songs expertly accompanied by guitar and banjo, Dani Larkin’s songs voyage through stories drawn from mythology and folklore, ruminations on love and relationships, and experiences of wildness, loss, love and mystery, steered with a gentle strength and engagingly calm conviction.

Pipped by RTE Radio 1, BBC Radio 2, Double J (Australia) and Folk Radio UK as a rising star on the Irish folk and alternative scene, this past year has been the breakthrough year for the emerging alt-folk artist Dani Larkin, with the release of her debut album Notes For A Maiden Warrior. In 2021, seeing nominations for Best Album at the Northern Ireland Music Prize, and Best Emerging Artist at RTE Folk Awards. Dani Larkin has been an artist picking up speed with each release, and one that has been making her mark on the industry in her own way. With appearances at recent editions of SXSW, The Great Escape, Reeperbahn, Doolin Folk Fest, Folk Alliance, and selected to open for Snow Patrol to sold-out venues of London’s Palladium Theatre, the Waterfront Hall in Belfast, as well as a special home shows for Hot House Flowers – she is a live act not to be missed.
