It’s been a fantastic year for Kildare band Bunoscionn and last week they had another reason to celebrate as they bagged a Sunday slot at Electric Picnic.

Already headlining this year’s Spirit of Folk Festival on September 22, the band will be inviting musicians from all backgrounds and bands to join in one massive session to finish off the nights music.

Meanwhile, they will be bringing their ‘Trad side of the Moon’ performance to Electric Picnic on September 1.

“We couldn’t be happier. We have been gigging, touring and practicing our hearts out this year and its all paid off. It’s also great to see bands supported and trusted in this way to bring something that stands out to an already eclectic lineup,” said the band.

Bunoscionn is fuelled by Ciarán, Michelle, Con, Mick and Glenda and they best describe the band as a “musical love-child, mothered by traditional Irish music and fathered by reggae/rock/blues/dance”.
