The Spook of the Thirteenth Lock

Named after a poem about a haunted canal lock, The Spook of the Thirteenth Lock bring Irish folk tradition with modern experimental rock sounds together.

“Lockout” is a new large-scale work by The Spook of the Thirteenth Lock about the 1913 Lockout. For this project the band are joined by an electric guitar orchestra, bringing this unique sound into the world of contemporary Irish traditional music.

“Lockout” will be performed in full for the first time with a special show at Hangar, with 18 musicians in what promises to be a unique performance. They will be joined by legendary traditional musician Dónal Lunny, a driving force behind Planxty and The Bothy Band.

Catch the band live at Hangar on 21 November. Tickets €15/ €12 early bird via
