Holy Trinity Church, Saturday 27th Oct, 9 pm. Support from Graham Sweeney.
Described as ‘exquisitely ethereal’ by The New York Times, singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Lisa Hannigan’s voice is unmistakable. Haunting and otherworldly, her tones are a perfect match for the beautiful, acoustic venue of Holy Trinity.
While modern elements form part of her music, this Galway girl is a folk singer at heart. Known for her collaborations with Damien Rice back in the day, she moved on to nurture her own eclectic style to become a truly standout solo performer.
She has released three critically acclaimed albums, Sea Sew (2008), Passenger (2011) and At Swim (2016). Her bewitching tracks can be heard in many films, from Shrek to the Oscar-winning Shape of Water – but you’re missing the true essence of her if you don’t witness this entertaining lady live.
Hannigan’s stunning vocal range captivates venues of all sizes and shapes. Her voice is confident, her lyrics powerful, intimate, arresting – yet her interactions with the audience show a shy yet bubbly personality. No ‘notions’, simply beguiling, natural, funny and sweet. An evening with the super-talented Lisa Hannigan is a real treat indeed.
