Tig Linn is a group of seven Irish and Nigerian musicians in Dublin, writing original songs in Yoruba and English, occasionally drawing from the Irish and Nigerian traditions. Our modest ambition is to change the world, one song at a time.
It was partly our interest in social justice that prompted Mavis Staples to choose us as her support act in the National Concert Hall, in 2012, the year we won the Walton’s Gospel Choir and Band competition. In 2013 we won the RTE John Murray Show competition and played at Electric Picnic, Body and Soul and Castlepalooza, amongst others.
An occasional unique feature of our set is an Afro-Céilí. We think our new EP, with its hand sewn case is so sexy we’re actually giving away a free condom with each cd.
Upcoming highlights for Tig Linn in 2014 include Africa Day at Farmleigh House and playing support to Hugh Masekele at the National Concert Hall in October.
