Ye Vagabonds comprises of harmony rich folk music, influenced by Irish traditional music, Appalachian singing, and the 1960s folk revival.
Brothers Brían and Diarmuid Mac Gloinn grew up playing music together around their hometown of Carlow, a small town in the southeast of Ireland. After moving to Dublin in 2012, they quickly became a staple of the live music and session scene in Ireland, playing their own original songs as well as folk songs from Ireland, the UK, and America.
Their debut EP Rose & Briar was released in 2015. Since then, they have been busy touring Ireland, the UK and Europe opening for acts such as Villagers, Roy Harper and Lisa Hannigan, as well as playing sold out headline shows in Ireland, France, Switzerland and the UK.
They have made numerous television and live radio appearances in Ireland, and were also part of Imagining Home, a live broadcast concert in the National Concert Hall of Ireland, curated by Glen Hansard, Philip King and Gary Sheehan.
In 2017 they launched their debut, self-titled album to great acclaim. Ye Vagabonds comprised of harmony rich folk music, influenced by Irish traditional music, Appalachian singing, and the 1960s folk revival – its ten mellow tracks weaved thoughtful lyrics, thickly layered with strings and droning harmonium. Their second album The Hare’s Lament was released in 2019 to critical acclaim.
