The Roundy, 1 Castle Street, Cork City
26th January 2018
The first Islander show is a small intimate show in Cork city featuring one of the country's most exciting trad/folk groups Landless, with support from local singer-songwriter Leah Sohotra.
Landless are Ruth Clinton, Meabh Meir, Sinead Lynch and Lily Power. They sing unaccompanied traditional songs from Irish, Scottish, English and American traditions in close four part harmony. Their repertoire features songs of love, death and lamentation, as well as work songs, shape-note hymns and more recently penned folk songs. Landless have performed in a variety of settings, both in Ireland and abroad, and are closely involved with traditional singing sessions in Dublin and Belfast.
They perform their first Cork headline show in The Roundy, the new home of the iconic Plugd Records, and support from the night will be the old-time Americana stylings of Leah Sohotra, who has started to make her name off the back of a few support slots with Cork favourite Mick Flannery.
