Hailing from Mayo, on the wild atlantic coast of Ireland, Vickers Vimy craft songs that dwell on the borders of folk and Americana. Rich eclectic sounds anchor lyrical themes of scratched vinyl nights and hazy Sunday mornings. Their second album “Atlas of Hearts” was released in 2018. The new single "Bonfire of Dantes" is out now.
Vickers Vimy have collaborated with Colm Mac Con Iomaire(The Frames & Swell Season) and had the pleasure of recording in the studio of Nick Seymour (Crowded House).
Vickers Vimy had the amazing fortune to support the late John Martyn. They have supported the Hothouse Flowers, Maria Doyle Kennedy, and Mundy. They have shared the RTE Music Train with Christy Moore, Kodaline, Paul Brady and Jack L.
