We’re delighted to announced that Lisa Hannigan will be performing two intimate shows in Whelan’s on Friday 7th July. First, a 3pm all ages matinee show, followed by an 8pm over 18’s only event. Tickets for both performances go on sale online on Friday (Jun 16th) at 10am from Whelanslive.com.

Lisa Hannigan first came to light as an angel-voiced, somewhat mysterious figure singing harmonies alongside Damien Rice. They played together for seven years, but it wasn’t until the release of her solo debut Sea Sew’ in 2008 that the full spectrum of her abilities became apparent. 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.
