The Folly Announces

Wyvern Lingo

We are thrilled to announce that Wyvern Lingo will perform at this year’s Folly Festival. The Wicklow based trio complete our lineup of acts for 2019, and how we are looking forward to July 19th & 20th!!!

Music is the glue that helped Wyvern Lingo stick together. From the age of 12,  they obsessed over hand-me-down albums of Led Zeppelin, Joni Mitchell and Simon & Garfunkel along with the R’n’B of the 90s/00s that then dominated the radio. Their music stitches together this tapestry of influences, united by their chilling vocal harmonies.

Their debut album went to number 1 on the Independent Irish Charts, and the Irish itunes charts and has been nominated for the Choice Music Prize album of the year. They have spent the best part of 2018 touring all over Ireland, the UK, Germany and the Netherlands with standout performances at Reading & Leeds (UK) Electric Picnic (IE), The Reeperbahn (DE), not to mention opening for legendary Grace Jones at Trinity College, Dublin. Having just returned from their biggest German and UK tours to date, Wyvern Lingo are working on some eagerly-anticipated new music.

" It adds up to an album as narratively deep as it is musically chunky. How often does a new artist surface with a collection of tracks that would sound comfortable on a throwback cassette tape mix while still sounding fresh-to-death? "

" It's this ultra modern sensibility which informs this easy to love debut album "
