THERE is a great concert to take a chance on this Saturday night at An Grianán Theatre, Letterkenny as Lisa O’Neill is joined by local rising star Rosie Carney.
Lisa O’Neill has had a remarkable year. Anyone who has already seen Lisa O’Neill play will testify that Lisa’s live performance are beguiling affairs full of banter and old-style folk intimacy.
Following the release of the David Kitt produced Same Cloth Or Not, Lisa hit the road with Glen Hansard in Ireland and then to the UK with Scottish folk singer James Yorkston.
Over the last couple of years she has toured North America, Canada, Europe Scotland & the UK, opening for David Gray, Mick Flannery, Angel Olsen as well as Glen Hansard and Sixto Rodriquez along the way.
Her voice is a unique instrument in itself, subtle enough to execute the tender reminiscence of a song like Speed Boat but powerful enough to bring the house down on the rousing call-to-arms chorus on Come Sit Sing.
Lisa is playing An Grianan this Saturday, July 26, as part of the Earagail Arts Festival with support from Downings’ Rosie Carney.
Rosie too has had quite the year when at 16 she signed a long term record deal with Polydor Records and spending the year travelling around the world working with various songwriters honing her craft.
At the recent Swell Festival on Arranmore Island we could see all this hard work and new confidence in a performance. For more info or to book call the An Grianán box office on Tel 074 91 20777 or log onto angrianan.com
