old HannahThe Irish Times called Old Hannah “a sublime band who straddle folk, country, roots, bluegrass, and more…”.

Old Hannah are a band from the west of Ireland who’ve spun their love of all things folk, country and traditional into a sound that’s at once contemporary, timeless and truly unique.

Their instrumentation blends the traditional string band set-up with drums, piano and trumpets, along-side stunning four-part harmonies. They’re multi-instrumentalists, superb vocalists, and a group of friends who clearly love what they do. An exceptionally engaging live act, Old Hannah are “the brightest act to emerge from Ireland’s roots music scene for many years” Fatea-Records.

Old Hannah are touring the UK during July – see oldhannah.com for details
