Featuring Brian Finnegan (Flook!) and 2014 BBC Folk Musician of the Year Aidan O'Rourke (Lau), KAN have announced details of a tour starting May 1st in Glens Centre, Manorhamilton, May 2nd An Droichead Belfast, Cultúrlann Ui Chanáin in Derry on May 3rd and the final tour date a headline show in Whelans Dublin on May 4th – full details below.  

Kan is a unique melding of the bold and beautiful flute virtuosity of Brian Finnegan from Armagh with the expressive and daring fiddle deftness of Aidan O’Rourke from Scotland’s Isle of Seil, cemented by the organic and intuitive drumming of Harrogate’s James Goodwin and the unfettered, playful guitar reinventions of Yorkshire native Ian Stephenson. Their acclaimed debut album 'Sleeper' was released last year garnering praise from MOJO, Songlines and fRoots and a new album is planned for 2015.  KAN takes the listener on a high-octane and dynamic journey that will enthral the senses and make the blood rush.  Their sound is experimental yet deeply rooted in the folk traditions of Scotland, Ireland, Northumberland and beyond.  Through daring exploration and the creation of rich and progressive soundscapes, Kan has joined the pantheon of new bands moving instrumental trad music in bold new directions.
