Black Bank Folk aim to tell stories through their music, the latest album aims to highlight some of the lesser known stories of the 1916 Easter rising. Staying away from the well known political themes, the band hope to give a more human account of a major event in Irish history, piecing together individual accounts and investigating universal themes of hope, loss, love, celebration and sacrifice. The Irish Times notes that the narrative arc of the collection has, ‘an immediacy that will likely resonate with a whole new audience.’
After their last fantastic show at The Purty we are very excited to welcome them back for a one off performance this March!
