Cross Cultural Music, Song & Dance on the banks of the Bann.


‘Dragon taming music…’ – this is a compliment made by Eileen Walsh, Radio Presenter on Drive 105 when describing the music of ‘Lore’ who are making their debut appearance at the festival.       

Having been nominated for ‘Best Irish Band’ and ‘Best EP’ by the ‘Pure M Awards 2015’ for their self-titled debut EP, the now five piece indie-folk group ‘Lore’ have went from strength to strength, releasing their widely acclaimed single ‘Teenage Kicks’ and their second highly anticipated EP ‘Believe’ in the Summer of 2016.

With recent appearances at UK and Irish festivals and play listed on national radio the band has supported international touring acts such as Cara Dillon, Kila and Ciaran Lavery.

Jamie Funkfrom the ‘The Equal Ground’ commented, 'Melancholy yet inspirational songs that bring to mind artists such as Melissa Etheridge, Tori Amos and Sarah McLachlan... Carlile has an exceptional voice. She is dynamic, diverse and is able to deliver different shades of emotion within one single word.'

‘Lore’ are delighted to have been invited to perform at the festival.
