This live performance from Irish band Lankum is quite a story.

As Covid swept the world in May, 2020, the quartet managed to find their way to Washington DC, USA to perform a live Tiny Desk concert. The journey hadn't been easy - visa problems had pushed back their February date and then their van broke down on the way from New York.

Thankfully they made it and put in a stunning performance. Enjoy the full 3-song tiny concert below including their amazing rendition of The Wild Rover.
