Dallahan Extensive UK Spring Tour Dates

Mar 18, 2024

Forged in Scotland and Ireland’s traditional music scene, but drawing on the music of the Balkans and North America, Dallahan take their listeners on a journey. Traversing styles and countries of the world in a dazzling live show, they create their own unique brand of World-folk delivered with stunning virtuosity.

The line-up consists of Jack Badcock on guitar and vocals, Ciaran Ryan on banjo, mandolin and fiddle, Andrew Waite on accordion and
Benedict Morris on fiddle.

Following the release of their debut album ‘When The Day Is On The Turn’ in 2014,  they quickly established themselves internationally at such prestigious international events as Milwaukee Irish Fest, Celtic Connections, Tonder Festival and countless others. In their first year, Dallahan was awarded the Emerging Excellence Award from Help Musicians UK and their debut album was shortlisted for ‘Album of the Year’ at the Scots Trad Music Awards.

2016 saw the release of their second album, ‘Matter Of Time’, which they performed globally 103 times that year, including travelling to Kathmandu, Nepal on behalf of the British Council to perform at the British/Nepalese bicentenary celebrations. The band was again shortlisted
for ‘Album of the Year’ and they were awarded ‘Instrumental Cut of The Year’ at the Live Ireland Awards (USA). In 2019, Dallahan released their third album, (and their first with the European record label, Westpark Records), to critical acclaim and were shortlisted in the German Music Critics Choice Awards in the Folk category.

To date, they have brought their live show to 20 countries, earned three nominations for ‘Folk of The Year’ in 2016, 2019 and 2022 and enjoyed collaborations such as with songwriting legend Dougie MacLean, a commissioned composition and collaboration with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra at a WWI commemorative concert and also a concert in Kathmandu with Nepal’s folk music exponents, Kutumba.

Approaching a decade together as a band, Dallahan have become a veteran touring outfit and with each album they continue to evolve their sound, as is evident on their upcoming fourth studio album, ‘Speak of the Devil’ released in June last year.

They are excited to announce that  “We’ll be up and down the land through late March and most of April. Get your tickets in advance!”

So here are those all important dates and venues for you to see if you can get along to see them live!
