The Langan Band never fail to get the crowd dancing. They are as much at home on a huge festival stage playing to thousands of people as they are playing an intimate Scottish Village Hall.

Award winners at the world renowned Celtic Connections Festival, Glasgow power trio The Langan Band create a dynamic sound that is rooted in Celtic Folk but encompasses Balkan, Roma and Flamenco elements, fuelled by a visceral punk spirit. With a deceptively stripped down line-up of vocals, guitar, fiddle, bass and percussion, The Langan Band never fail to get the crowd dancing. They are as much at home on a huge festival stage playing to thousands of people as they are playing an intimate Scottish Village Hall.

‘The John Langan Band offer a collection of songs and tunes that take us on a vertigo inducing reel around European and American acoustic traditions delivering with a jagged, punky and irresistible edge. That three guys from Glasgow could conspire to create such an immense sound between them is not unprecedented, but to achieve this with such lyrical and instrumental flair is a rare, rare thing’ Neil McFadyen, Folk Radio UK

‘Astonishing work, boundlessly inventive… driving rhythms and mesmerising folk melodies’ R2 Magazine

‘The band possess an originality and dramatic edge that pushes into new and highly energetic territory’ Songlines Magazine, 4 stars.

Our work with young people

Children and Young People are at the heart of what we do, as audience members, as participants and as thought leaders.

Through our landmark ART31 project we are working with young people and partners in Kent to create new opportunities through the arts for under 25's across the county.

Below are some of our current projects focused on the development of young people.
