Radio 2 BBC Folk Award 2019 winners, Ye Vagabonds' (brothers Brían and Diarmuid Mac Gloinn) music comprises of harmony rich folk music, influenced by Irish traditional music, Appalachian singing, and the 1960s folk revival.

Their mellow tunes are weaved with thoughtful lyrics, thickly layered with strings and droning harmonium.

During their musical career, they have made numerous television and live radio appearances in Ireland, toured with Villagers, Roy Harper and Lisa Hannigan, and were also part of Imagining Home, a broadcast concert in the National Concert Hall of Ireland, 2016, curated by Glen Hansard, Philip King and Gary Sheehan.


They remind me of my first days at ‘Les Cousins’ in Soho in 1965... Ye Vagabonds are a modern expression of a tradition that is truly robust and important to these islands
Roy Harper
In an age where styles have a limited shelf life [...], Ye Vagabonds make music that honours timeless sincerity with acoustic fireside storytelling that will sound as current a hundred years from now as it has for a hundred generations past
Myles O'Reilly
