A formidable live act that has captivated audiences at home and around the globe, Kan have performed sold-out shows in Japan and India, a blistering headline slot at Ortigueira Festival in Galicia and a show-stealing performance at WOMEX 2013.

Kan is a unique melding of the bold and beautiful flute virtuosity of Brian Finnegan from Armagh with the expressive and daring fiddle deftness of Aidan O’Rourke from Scotland’s Isle of Seil, cemented by the organic and intuitive drumming of Harrogate’s James Goodwin and the unfettered, playful guitar reinventions of Yorkshire native Ian Stephenson. Their acclaimed debut album ‘Sleeper’ was released last year garnering praise from MOJO, Songlines and fRoots and a new album is planned for 2015. KAN takes the listener on a high-octane and dynamic journey that will enthral the senses and make the blood rush. Their sound is experimental yet deeply rooted in the folk traditions of Scotland, Ireland, Northumberland and beyond. Through daring exploration and the creation of rich and progressive soundscapes, Kan has joined the pantheon of new bands moving instrumental trad music in bold new directions.
