LaLaLa hosts an evening of stunning new vocal music with Åkervinda and The Ballina Whalers. These groups will take your breath away with their contemporary interpretations of ancient folk songs.

Åkervinda are an all female quartet from Sweden and Denmark. The four singers have a beautiful, vivid and engaging take on traditional Nordic music. Their vocal arrangements are intricate and unusual, and the singers leave lots of room for improvisation and invention.

The Ballina Whalers are three musical barnacles clinging to the creaking hull of a vocal tradition stretching back over hundreds of years. Their repertoire explores ballads, shanties and seafaring songs in hearty three-part harmony.

Please note the The Old Church BAR is cash only.
