Katie Kim and Radie Peat are joining forces for an audiovisual performance

Words: Dylan Murphy

The pair will perform new arrangements of original material, folk songs and reimagined contemporary songs live on Nollaig na mBan this Wednesday.

Wednesday 6 January sees Katie Kim and Lankum’s Radie Peat team up for a new and immersive audiovisual performance for Nollaig na mBan. As part of the Quiet Lights Festival online series, they’ll perform new arrangements of original material, folk songs, and reimagined contemporary songs.

The duo will be joined by drummer/singer Eleanor Myler (Percolator), John Spud Murphy (producer of RTÉ Choice Music Prize award winning album The Livelong Day by Lankum), and the sound artist/filmmaker Vicky Langan who will look after the visual side of the performance.

The forthcoming performance follows Peat’s lengthy tour of the US with Lankum prior to the Corona Virus pandemic. Kim relocated to the states in 2019 and opened for the band at their sold out Mercury Lounge show in NY.

Coincidently, both Kim and Peat ended up living within 500 metres of each other when they both returned to Ireland. This led to the creation of this collaborative project.

The performance takes place 20.00, Wednesday 6 January and will be available for 48 hours after.
