THE LATCHIKÓS

plus guests

Credited as the originators of “Gyp-Hop” (Gaelic gypsy hip-hop!) the Latchiko’s blend a raw mix of Virtuoso violin, Spoken Word and Raw driving Gaelic beats with humour and gusto.

A rare fusion of spoken word and crunchy Gaelic beats, set alight with a gypsy violin, blues harmonica and west of Ireland theatrics. ‘The Latchikos feat. ” Ireland’s greatest busker” Tim Scanlan, a travelling gypsy violinist and raconteur -Aindrias de Staic and rapper/drummer/trombonist Eimhin Craddock ( ex the Sawdoctors)

‘…A demented Trad trio whipping an already frothing crowd into a frenzy. The Latchikos had steam coming off bald men’s heads’ 
The Irish Times

This is what happens when Irish men give up the beer and go on raw food diet.  Creative insanity of the highest!!!!

The Latchikos will tour this summer in June through Ireland & the UK including Glastonbury Festival. July in Canada including ‘The Vancouver Folk Festival’ & ‘Calgary Folk Festival’

‘A wild-eyed shock of Celtic unpredictability, Galway-born Aindrias de Staic is not only a captivating yarn-spinning but also a master fiddler. Fast, furious, talented and hilarious’ 
The Scotsman
