Joel Harkin
with Neptune M and Mick€y
Belfast based Joel Harkin is an independent Alt-Folk Singer who has honed his distinctive brand of folk music with a sinister undertone in his many years of performance, cultivating an intimate performance style that weaves haunting melodies with evocative, honest storytelling.
A graduate of Queens University Music Technology and Sonic Arts Programme, he’s supported acts such as SOAK, Rainy Boy Sleep, Robyn G. Shiels, Bry, The Wood Burning Savages and Mojo Fury. His latest release “Charlie and Deirdre” racked up over 12,000 views on Facebook in just over a month after its release and also was featured on BBC Radio Ulster’s Across The Line.
This Balor gig is something of a homecoming it being the Donegal natives first solo performance in Donegal in over 2 years.
Joining Joel on the bill will be Neptune M – an original artist from Letterkenny who lists Jeff Buckley, Nina Simone and Bjork among her influences – and Donegal rap artist Mick€y AKA Kuribruh known for this song What’s The Craic Now?
