Lynched are a four-piece traditional folk group from Dublin, 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. A recent appearance on Later with Jools on BBC 2 has earned them new well deserved attention they play Live At St. Luke’s on December 22nd.
Buille, who formed in Cork in 2004 by three Armagh refugees – brothers Niall & Caoimhín Vallely with Paul Meehan – they have blazed a trail through traditional and contemporary music, releasing two critically lauded genre defying albums and performing hundreds of concerts all over the world. Although the line-up has evolved over the years, the freshness and originality of the music has remained constant.
Buille, which is the Irish for beat or strike, only partly describes the impact of the Buille sound which was described by the Irish Times as “as fresh a breath that’s blown through traditional (and roots) circles in a long, long time.” The music, which is all newly composed, draws its influences from jazz, blues, Eastern Europe, contemporary classical music, and of course their own roots in the Irish tradition.
