Singer-songwriter Lisa O’Neill is one of the most unique talents in Irish music. Her recent album, Heard A Long Gone Song, has received great acclaim both at home and abroad – not least for her ability to frame her remarkable voice against impressionistic accompaniments, like Margaret Barry colluding with the Dirty Three or some such meeting of minds.
Lisa O’Neill’s roots may be sourced in folk and traditional music but her work transcends any arbitrary categorisation. For this once-off curated show, Lisa will be joined by fellow writers and composers, Séamus Fogarty, Kú and Ruth O’Mahony-Brady, to
Irish alt-folk artist, Séamus Fogarty, released his third album A Bag Of Eyes at the end of 2020. His second album for Domino Records, it follows on from the success of 2017’s much-lauded The Curious Hand. He released his debut full-length, God Damn You Mountain, on Scottish label Fence Records in 2012.
Ruth O’Mahony-Brady is a pianist, vocalist and composer from Dublin. Inspired by the synthesis of acoustic elements with electronic textures, her music seeks to combine her beginnings as a classical pianist with her penchant for vintage synths, organs and drum machines.
Kú are Kilian (vocals and guitar), Cathal Caulfield (fiddle), Kinko (bodhrán) and Tom Mulrooney (bass). Emerging from the Dublin folk scene, Kú perform original works exclusively. Their influences are primarily traditional and folk musics, as well as the city of Dublin itself.
