Lisa O’Neill, Seamus Fogarty, Kú and Ruth O'Mahony-Brady

Lisa O’Neill is a songwriter like no other. Her roots may be sourced in folk and traditional music but her work opens up a landscape beyond any settled sense of genre. For this once-off curated show, Lisa gathers together with fellow writers and composers as they perform their songs, explore their origins, share their stories.

Songwriter Lisa O’Neill is one of the most singular and exciting talents in Irish music today. Her latest release Heard A Long Gone Song has garnered huge acclaim both at home and abroad. The album see her set her remarkable incisive voice against impressionistic instrumental back-drops, like Margaret Barry colluding with the Dirty Three or some such meeting of minds. This evening at NCH promises more explorations.

Irish alt-folk and electronica alchemist Seamus Fogarty released his third album A Bag Of Eyes at the end of 2020. His second album for Domino Records, it follows on from the success of 2017’s much-lauded The Curious Hand, a ‘stunning, mercurial album’ that was awarded 5/5 by The Guardian. He released his debut full-length, God Damn You Mountain, on cult Scottish label Fence Records in 2012.

Ruth O'Mahony-Brady is a pianist, vocalist and composer from Dublin. Inspired by the synthesis of acoustic elements with electronic textures, her music seeks to combine her beginnings as a classical pianist with her penchant for vintage synths, organs and drum machines.

are Kilian (vocals and guitar), Cotsy Caulfield (fidil), Kinko (bodhrán) and Tom Mulrooney (bass). Emerging from the Dublin folk scene Kú, perform original works exclusively. Their influences are primarily traditional and folk musics, as well as the city of Dublin itself.
