The Spook of the Thirteenth Lock will perform “Lockout” in full for the first time at Hangar, with 18 musicians in what promises to be a unique and powerful performance. The band are honoured to be joined by legendary traditional musician Dónal Lunny, a driving force behind Planxty and The Bothy Band.

“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” is a grand departure for the band, bringing an epic volume and scale to their unique blend of contemporary and traditional sounds, and adding a sharper, more political voice which addresses the recent anniversary of the Lockout, and its relevance today.
