The President of Ireland is a one of this group’s most notable fans! Following their popular concert at Fête de la Musique 2015 and sell-out concerts all over Europe, The Young Folk return to CCI for a concert in the intimate surroundings of the chapel. Their second album First Sign of Morning propels the trio from the alt-folk music bracket to mainstream indie pop without abandoning the trad roots, rich lyrics and layered harmonies of their debut. Each song of this deeply personal collection tells a story from the songwriter’s life, a tradition that runs deep in The Young Folk’s veins.
"Serious challengers for the area populated by the likes of Fleet Foxes, Mumford & Sons and The Low Anthem."
"They are quite simply, one of the most promising young bands to come out of Ireland in several decades, and this debut album is a fantastic calling card and opening gambit for the lads."
