Lisa Hannigan takes to the stage for two intimate gigs in our pop-up venue in Selskar Square on Wednesday 9th December.
Lisa released her debut album Sea Sew in 2008. A joyous kaleidoscope of love songs, laments, sea shanties and glockenspiels, with a cover hand-stitched by Lisa herself, the self-released album was a runaway success, nominated for a Choice award in Ireland and a Mercury Music Prize in the UK.
The ecstatic reception gave her the confidence to explore deeper, darker emotions. Passenger, which came out in 2011, cantered around the pain of leaving and the sense of apartness consequent to a life spent in constant motion.
In 2015, she made her film debut as a Selkie (mermaid) – in the Oscar-nominated Irish animation Song of the Sea. She has also voiced the character Blue Diamond in the popular American animated television series Steven Universe. As well as acting she has also contributed a haunting cover of ‘Danny Boy’ to the TV series Fargo, as well as vocals for Steve Price’s scores for Gravity (which won an Oscar).
In 2016, she released her third album, the evocative and more pop-oriented At Swim, which was produced by the National’s Aaron Dessner. In 2019 Hannigan released her first concert album, Live in Dublin, which was recorded at the National Concert Hall with the contemporary classical orchestra s t a r g a z e.
