Back in July we shared a live session (made Song of the Day) from Irish band The Spook of the Thirteenth Lock. The song James Nolan Laid To Rest/ The Asquith Inquiry was taken from Lockout – a new large-scale work with the Electric Guitar Orchestra written to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the 1913 Dublin Lockout. The band have just announced that “Lockout” will be performed in full for the first time with a special show in Dublin (the Hangar) with 18 musicians, they will be joined by legendary traditional musician Dónal Lunny, a driving force behind Planxty and The Bothy Band. Watch them performing Lockout Movement 1 below:
“Lockout” is a grand departure for the band, bringing an epic volume and scale to their unique blend of contemporary and traditional sounds, and adding a sharper, more political voice which addresses the recent anniversary of the Lockout, and its relevance today.
