This year’s The Hare & the Line reconfirms Inni-K’s status as one of Ireland’s most exciting artists” – The Irish Times
Nominated for Best Traditional Folk Track Category for RTÉ Radio 1 Folk Awards 2019.
Named by RTÉ.ie as “one of ten fierce women defining Irish culture”, Co. Kildare singer, multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Inni-K (Eithne Ní Chatháin) has received consistent praise for her fresh style of indie-folk since the 2015 release of her acclaimed album The King has Two Horse’s Ears.
Inni-K’s second album The Hare & the Line was released 1 March 2019 to great critical acclaim. She sold out the Irish Arts Centre, New York; was an Official Showcase performer at Folk Alliance International music conference in Montréal as part of her U.S. and Canada tour dates earlier this year; and has been touring extensively throughout Ireland with dates also in continental Europe & the UK since the release of the album. Summer ’19 festival performances have included Body & Soul, with a full band appearance at Electric Picnic.
“A superb blend of rootsy folk, trad and jazz sounds tied together by the artist’s immaculate vocals” – Nialler9
“This record is worth enjoying and appreciating as an excellent reflection of modern Irish music from one of Ireland’s most exciting young musicians” – Folk Radio UK
“Blending Irish trad with modern folk, the singer delivers 10 exquisite tunes (some in Irish), with her ethereal vocals as spellbinding as ever…entirely unique” – Hotpress
Inni-K’s music draws on her extensive background in folk and traditional Irish music, even as she ventures into new musical territories. Her music combines ethereal vocals with deft musicianship, evocative lyrics (bilingual at times), and a unique approach to song-writing. Having shared stages with various renowned musicians including Malian kora master Toumani Diabaté, drummer Jeff Ballard, Glen Hansard, Liam Ó Maonlaí, Lisa Hannigan, and many more, Inni-K is becoming a well-established presence in Irish music.
Inni-K will be performing live at The Linenhall Arts Centre in Castlebar next Thursday night
