Serious joins with National Concert Hall, Dublin to present Lisa O’Neill – a songwriter like no other. Last year, she played for Serious in a sold out Union Chapel show, and was featured in our Imagining Ireland programme produced by Serious, National Concert Hall, Dublin, and Culture Ireland. Her Rough trade album, Heard A Long Gone Song, sees her remarkable voice breathing new life into traditional songs and has garnered huge acclaim both at home and abroad. Tackling songs passed through generations, some mixed with political messages giving a voice to a community, or dark tales of the past, Lisa performs all with ease.
‘Raw and unvarnished folk. Uncompromising, stunning, soul-shaking stuff’ (★★★★★ Guardian)
Lankum performs live at WGBH’s Fraser Performance Studio in Boston. The Dublin-based group, consisting of Cormac MacDiarmada, Radie Peat, and brothers Ian and Daragh Lynch, makes a special kind of Celtic folk music, mixing ambient textures with harmonies that harness astonishing power. In 2019, their album The Livelong Day won Album of the Year at the RTÉ Choice Awards.
