About this event

The Raines, a folk/Americana trio from Galway, Ireland, comprises Ruth Dillon, Yvonne Tiernan, and Juliana Erkkonen. Formed in 2019 on the island of Inis Oírr, their mutual love for melody and words birthed their unique sound.

Their chemistry is palpable, with Yvonne and Ruth hailing from Ireland and Juliana from Finland, creating an original blend of musical styles that resonates with the audience. Ruth Dillon (vocals, guitar, ukulele), a former member of The Molly Hicks, has toured with Dolores Keane and released three solo albums. Yvonne Tiernan (vocals/ukulele/percussion) gained fame as the lead singer for ‘The Chieftains’ and has toured globally. Juliana Erkkonen (fiddle and vocals) is a cornerstone of the Americana scene in Ireland, with eight albums to her name

Part of TradFest 2024.
