Robinson-Stone return to the Peel Centenary Centre after their Isle of Man debut last year with more original music, classics from the singer songwriter era and traditional British folk.“Trio in perfect harmony thrilled the audience on their first visit to the island” – Manx Independent (Jackie Darbyshire)
Guitarist Danny, pianist Dean, and multi-instrumentalist Leyna-write and produce their own original material and combine their layered sibling harmonies with a blend of Celtic folk music and vintage Americana to create their unique and eclectic style. After establishing themselves on the UK folk scene, the band released their eponymous debut album ‘Robinson-Stone’ in 2016 which received nationwide BBC radio airplay.
2020 saw the release of their new album ‘Skywatcher’. The rich harmonies and vintage styling cement Robinson-Stone as a modern throwback band, emulating artists such as the Eagles, Fleetwood Mac and the Carpenters. With inspiration drawn from multiple eras of music – from the singer-songwriters and symphonic standards of the 1970s, to modern ‘adult contemporary’ genres – Robinson-Stone have produced a nostalgic yet fresh sound.

Even before its release, Colm Bairéad’s debut feature became one of the most lauded and garlanded Irish films of recent years. Adapted from Foster, a short story by Claire Keegan, it centres on nine-year-old Cáit, a shy and withdrawn child who receives scant attention or affection from a family ruled by an uncaring patriarch. When she is sent to spend the summer with her aunt Eibhlín (Carrie Crowley) and her husband Seán (Andrew Bennett), she comes out of her shell, blossoming in their care, especially when Seán’s initial aloofness fades. At the end of the summer, difficult decisions and realities must be faced. This is a work of small moments and details, anchored by Catherine Clinch’s remarkable performance as the titular quiet girl, that make for a film of pure artistry, as uplifting as it is heartbreaking.
Seven-time winner at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, including 2018 Folk Singer of The Year, Karine Polwart’s latest project is a collaboration with renowned jazz/folk pianist Dave Milligan.
Piano and voice isn’t a combination that you hear often in the folk idiom, and yet it can be just as potent, if not more so, than a full band, and the duo’s new album is just this – an intimate, stripped-back collection of songs performed entirely with voice and grand piano. Deceptively simple, yet devastatingly powerful. ‘Still As Your Sleeping’ (Oct ’21) is threaded through with images of stillness and flux, leaving and returning, and pivots of change and includes the timeless and poignant ‘The Parting Glass’ as requested by Margaret Atwood for her specially curated BBC Radio 4 Today programme.
Legendary Irish folk music band Dervish, are one of Ireland’s best known traditional bands and are described by the BBC as “an icon of Irish music”.
Dervish received a prestigious lifetime achievement award from the BBC in 2019, a fitting tribute to the band after over 30 years of recording and performing all over the world, playing at festivals from Rio to Glastonbury.
Dervish have a line-up which includes some of Ireland’s finest traditional musicians, fronted by one of the country’s best-known singers, Cathy Jordan. Regarded by many as the most distinctive voice and finest front-woman in Irish traditional music today – the instrumental line-up of fiddle, flute, bouzouki, mandola, bodhran and accordion draw from seemingly limitless depths of talent, finesse, subtlety and fiery energy. Exceptional musicianship, breath-taking vocals, vibrant sets of tunes and instantly compelling songs all come together to make Dervish as complete a band as are to be found anywhere in the tradition.
Dervish are regular visitors to the US, performing sell out shows from coast to coast. However, their fan base stretches across several continents, including Europe, Asia, and South America. They were the first Irish band to play the world’s biggest music festival, Rock in Rio, performing to an estimated 250,000 people. Over the years they’ve been on the same bill as artists such as James Brown, Neil Young, Sting and even Iron Maiden!
