Loading Events

World Music Festival and the IAHC present Lankum for a free all-ages concert this fall as part of World Music Festival Chicago 2019.

Lankum are a four-piece group from Dublin who combine traditional folk roots with contemporary undercurrents to forge music that is dark, mysterious and transcendental.

The award-winning quartet fuses distinctive four-part vocal harmonies with arrangements of uilleann pipes, concertina, accordion, fiddle and guitar. Their repertoire spans humorous Dublin music-hall ditties and street songs, classic ballads, traditional Irish and American dance tunes and their own original material.

See these rising stars of Irish music and find out why The Guardian calls Lankum “The most convincing folk band to come out of Ireland in years”.
Lankum in concert is Friday, September 20 at 7pm in the IAHC’s Erin Room. Doors open at 6:30pm and the Fifth Province Pub opens at 5pm.
