Acclaimed Irish folk artist Lisa O'Neill comes to this beautiful church setting for an evening of raw, true folk songs.
'Heard A Long Gone Song', her first album for Rough Trade Records imprint River Lea, is a collection of traditional material interspersed with her own. The sense of ownership Lisa imbues in these old songs, coupled with the immutability of her chosen subjects makes it hard to tell which is which. 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' ( The Guardian)
'As beautiful as it gets. You will be drawn into an authentic, sometimes otherworldly, sense of place, time, and tradition. ONeill calmly but decisively stakes her claim as a mould-breaker' ( The Irish Times)
'A mix of thoroughly captivating self-written and traditional songs. Her performances are every bit as eclectic as they are authentic' (Folk Radio)
