“An alternative multi-instrumentalist duo from Derry and Donegal, Waldorf & Cannon make a little go a very long way.

With both members on vocal duties, Philip Wallace AKA Waldorf playing a Farmer Footdrum kit (check it out the link below it’s pretty awesome), guitar and harmonica, and Oisin Cannon on bass, their craft – influenced by the likes of Pixies, Devo, Link Wray, Beck and The Dead Kennedys – is testament to the fact that the song, no matter how it’s written, wrangled or performed, reigns supreme. Their debut album ‘Old Dogs New Tricks’ is a consistently intriguing release from one of the country’s most idiosyncratic alternative propositions”. Brian Coney, Editor at ‘The Thin Air’

The album is currently available on vinyl, CD & for digital download available at plus various local record shops around the country such as Cool Discs, Derry, Sick Records, Belfast, Boneyard Records, Omagh and Music Zone, Cork.

Last year Waldorf & Cannon played their biggest shows to date supporting Frank Turner & The Sleeping Souls on the Irish leg of his world tour. At the beginning of February 2017 they toured Ireland with Bella Union artists ExMagician and in March 2017 toured Russia.

Electric Picnic 2017: Jerry Fish invited the band to play his Electric Sideshow stage tipping them as one of the acts of the festival and giving them a fantastic slot on the Sunday evening before Ash. The band ended up playing all 3 nights and were offered 2 extra shows in Body & Soul.

This year also seen them become endorsed by their beloved Danelectro Guitars at JHS.

And… by the game changing Farmer Footdrums

Rise Up was used as the theme tune on all 8 episodes of Late License (Season 2) on BBC2.
