County Cavan songwriter Lisa O’Neill returns to the National Concert Hall to present an orchestral performance with the National Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Gabriella Teychenné. This will be her only show in Dublin in the year 2024.

Scored by Terry Edwards, Lisa will be performing new orchestrations of songs from her studio albums, Same cloth or not, Pothole in the Sky, Heard a long gone song and All of this is chance. She may even introduce the beginnings of some things new as we approach the end of another year. November 16th falls on the full moon. The Celts called this the Reed Moon, comparing it to the mournful music made by wind instruments and to the ghoulish sounds of the spirits being drawn into the underworld.  In many ways it marks the beginning of the end.

"O'Neill is a cultural hero in her own right. She has released five albums since 2009, building a reputation as a modern artist tapped into the ancient." New York Times

Nick Hart and Tom Moore have been playing music together in various guises for well over a decade. November 2023 saw the release of the highly anticipated first duo album The Colour of Amber. 
Frankie Archer has exploded onto the electrofolk scene with music that transcends stereotypes using a combination of manipulated samples, synths, drum tracks and earthy Northumbrian fiddle and voice to capture her audience. Her aim? To shake up genres and traditions, challenge perspectives and call for a fairer future.
Uilleann piper Leonard Barry with Andy Morrow and Seamie O’Dowd presents Littoral, his beautiful third solo album, ten years after the acclaimed New Road. The title reflects both Leonard's youth in the townland of Kilmoyley in North Kerry, and his current home on the Sligo coast, celebrating his journey as a musician with some of the many artists he has met on the way.
