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. 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 latest studio album, Speak of the Devil released in June 2023.
The violinist, singer and composer Julie Alapnes blends harmonically traditional Norwegian folk music with elements from a wide and diverse musical universe. The beautiful melodies thrive in this cinematic landscape, where Julie's characteristic fiddle and the harmonium form an important foundation. You can tell her apart from others due to her strong signature as an instrumentalist. She is well known for her presence on stage, where she delivers beautiful compositions while carrying on the tradition of folk music from the North of Norway.
Julie's band consists of Petter Carlsen on Baryton guitar, Halvard Rundberg on foot pumped harmonium and guitars, and Aleksander Kostopoulos behind the drums, and their second release Helleristning was nominated for the Norwegian Grammys in 2022.
