  • Lankum (formerly Lynched) is a four-piece folk group from Dublin, Ireland, whose distinctive mix of four-part harmonies and lively multi-instrumental arrangements is certainly getting them noticed.

    After gaining a reputation for high quality folk music tinged with everything from ambient techno to black metal and punk, the band have become well-known from their debut album Cold Old Fire, a coast-to-coast US tour, a blinding set at Celtic Connections 2015 and a stunning appearance on Later... with Jools Holland.

    Come and enjoy the band's extensive repertoire, spanning humorous Dublin music-hall ditties to street-songs, classic ballads from the Traveller tradition, traditional Irish and American dance tunes, and their own original material. It'll be a night to remember.
    With Peter Gabriel's famous theatrics and Genesis' unmistakable musicianship, the band's artistry would produce some of the most distinct images and sounds of the progressive rock era, such as the mythic, 23 minutes long Supper's Ready, considered to be one of the most intense live music experiences ever created.

    Exclusively licensed by Peter Gabriel and Genesis, The Musical Box has performed for more than a million spectators worldwide in some of the most prestigious venues such as the London Royal Albert Hall, and had the privilege of receiving Phil Collins and Steve Hackett from Genesis as performing guests. With its quest for authenticity, The Musical Box is often cited as the best interpretation group in the world, proving the relevance of performing contemporary songs.

    Suitable for: Ages 14 and over. Under 16s to be accompanied by an adult

  • Cost: £48.50, £37, £24.50 (includes £2 booking fee)
