Bringing music to life in the heart of Portaferry
Wookalily are quirky, in a good way. Folk-gothic troubadour tales, new-time mountain music, glorious melodic hooks and a drum kit which guarantees purists cover their ears. Five women (Adele, Sharon, Lyndsay, Lou and Clair): too girly to be a beat group, too funky to be a folk group, too good to miss.
Wookalily released their debut EP Black Magic Doll in 2011. Their song ‘Diamonds And Gold’ gained them a showcase at the prestigious IBMA World of Bluegrass Festival in Nashville in 2012. They also recorded for Country Music Hall-Of-Famer Dixie Hall’s Pickin’ Like A Girl compilation in 2013 – the only non-American band to do so. Their own debut album All The Waiting While was released in November 2014. It’s rumbling along nicely with local airplay and humbling acclaim from fellow musicians worldwide. They were scouted by Warner Bros Wall to Wall Productions for BBC4 documentary featuring Midge Ure and Rhod Gilbert in 2016 and made it to the NATIONS final.
