Where to begin with the great talent that is Lisa Lambe? Lisa is a graduate of the Samuel Beckett Centre, Trinity College Dublin and has become one of Ireland’s most sought after singers, stage actresses & performers. 2015 saw the release of her debut solo album ‘Hiding Away’. Recorded in Nashville, it has been received to huge acclaim in her native Ireland, and the US where it debuted in the top ten in general Charts, while reaching number one in the iTunes downloads vocal charts as well as RTE’s Album of the Week. The album’s intimacy is a showcase for Lambe’s remarkable voice and captures a singer whose rare instinct for interpretation always serves the song.
The past year Lisa has worked in close collaboration with the wonderful musicians Fiachna O’Braonain and Martin Brunsden on their new music project being created in Killruddery House Co. Wicklow and we are delighted Trad Fest will see them perform new material from their forthcoming album due for release in early 2017. The trio have found in each other a natural simple symbiosis which draws on various musical roots to produce a gentle and heartfelt world of song. The music lends itself to perfect re-creation in a performance setting.
Martin plays double bass and singing saw. He has worked with holy men and women, artists, Hothouse Flowers, poets, sculptors and theatre companies.
Fiachna has worked with African gospel singers, Moroccan tribesmen, Texan swingers and Irish balladeers as well as performing with his own band Hothouse Flowers for over thirty years.
This luminous artist will appear in St. Michan’s Church on Sat 26th January as part of the TradFest 2017 and will be accompanied by Fiachna O’Braonain, Martin Brunsden plus special guests. Book Early!
