Dowth are a Dublin based two-piece band who fuse acoustic instrumentation from Melodica and Fiddle to sample based beats and synth drones. They create heavy, atmospheric music which draws inspiration from the concept of 'the otherworld' in Irish folk and mythology. Dowth came together through the community cross section of folk and punk scenes in Dublin.  Their music is a portal, an unapologetic escape from the city.  Their music has been described as both  'cinematic'  and 'epic' , but it is also uniquely their own.

John Kelleher (Rats Blood, GRIT) plays fiddle, Tim Ording (Melodica Deathship) plays melodica and produces the instrumentals.
