Saturday 16 July, 2016 | 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm| £15
Singer, songwriter, and musician, Lisa Hannigan is set to embark on a highly anticipated Irish tour this summer. Previewing songs from her forthcoming third studio album, to be released later this year, the tour will see Lisa play a mix of unique and intimate venues across the country. Since the release of her debut solo album Sea Sew, Lisa has toured the world and collaborated with artists as diverse as Ray LaMontagne, Richard Hawley, Herbie Hancock, Glen Hansard and Aaron Dessner. Sea Sew went double platinum, was nominated for the Choice Music Prize and the Mercury Prize in the UK, while her sophomore album, Passenger, went straight in at Number 1 in Ireland on its first week of release and earned Lisa yet another Choice Music Prize nomination.
Zoë Conway, no stranger to the stage, has performed with an impressive list of international artists including Riverdance, Damien Rice, Lou Reed, Nick Cave, Rodrigo y Gabriella to mention but a few. In contrast to this, she has been an important figure within classical music circles in Ireland and abroad, as her crossover discipline has allowed her the pleasure of appearing as soloist with acclaimed orchestras such as The Irish Chamber Orchestra, National Symphony Orchestra, BBC Symphony Orchestra and German WDR Symphony Orchestra; pieces recited include her own compositions and works composed for her by world renowned Irish composer, Bill Whelan.
John McIntyre grew up in the Cooley Mountains of north County Louth where he took up guitar at 8 years of age. He began his career as electric guitarist with the successful indie band, The Revs with whom he performed on many famous stages and festivals including Oxygen, and Slane in Ireland, Reading and Leeds in the UK, and toured extensively in USA, Australia and Europe. He has worked alongside many world renowned producers, and is now also producing and recording in many genres. John studied classical guitar and piano for many years, and from early childhood, he was immersed in the songs and traditional dance music of south west Donegal.
