About this event
About the artists:
”Political, intense, angular and beautiful” – BBC1

Luke Concannon has early memories of falling asleep at Irish family parties to the sound of guitars, singing, and dancing. He’s been playing music in community ever since. Lead singer and co-writer with No1 chart act Nizlopi (best known for the “JCB Song”) who deeply influenced a young Ed Sheeran; Luke is now a solo artist, who’s 2022 album Ecstatic Bird In The Burning debuted at No12 in the UK and US folk charts and received rave reviews:
“A really great song, great voice and it sounds wicked, it sounds really wicked.” – Ed Sheeran
“One to watch every year, he’s just an incredibly talented musician. I’m really excited for his future. I cannot wait to see him live again… a brilliant performer.” – Angelle Joseph (BBC Introducing in Suffolk)
Joe’s journey began somewhere around the time he performed Green Day’s ‘Boulevard of Broken Dreams’ with his friends at a concert at the end of primary school. At 19, Joe left his hometown of Ipswich to live in London, where he grappled with loss, grief and bad habits as well as an abundance of affirming experiences that influenced the writing of his first two 10-track albums: ‘Landscape’ and ‘Cityscape’. He moved back to Ipswich and recorded both these projects and honed his live performance by gigging all around Suffolk. The covid-19 pandemic halted all live performances but, since it began, Joe has released ‘Landscape’ and ‘Cityscape’, which garnered praise from all over the world, and begun the production of his third album. Joe now lives in Austria and is performing in the UK and Europe throughout 2022.
