GENRE FLUID Singer/songwriter Lisa O’Neill’s unique sound has bewitched audiences and critics alike.
A ground-breaking original on the Irish folk scene and beyond, singer/songwriter Lisa O’Neill brings her unique and compelling musical talents to the Linenhall Arts Centre in Castlebar on Thursday, June 6, at 8pm.
Lisa O’Neill is an Irish songwriter like no other. Her roots may be in folk and traditional music, but her work opens up a landscape beyond any settled sense of genre. Over the years, she has quietly built a reputation for herself on the Irish and international scenes and now has a growing following with her unique folk sound, strong song-writing and distinctive voice.
Her debut release, ‘Has an Album’, was followed in 2013 by Choice Music Prize-nominated ‘Same Cloth Or Not’. Her third album, ‘Pothole in the Sky’, was released to general critical acclaim, and the recently released ‘Heard A Long Gone Song’ was both Choice-nominated and voted Best Folk Album of 2018 by The Guardian.
With music full of beauty, honesty and defiance, performing live, Lisa is sublime. For this concert, she will be supported by folk/traditional singer and multi-instrumentalist John Francis.
