Singer, songwriter, and musician, Lisa Hannigan has earmarked Interlude festival as the only Dublin date on her highly anticipated Irish tour this summer. Previewing songs from her forthcoming third studio album, to be released later this year, the tour will see Lisa play a mix of unique and intimate venues across the country.
Since the release of her debut solo album Sea Sew, Lisa has toured the world and collaborated with artists as diverse as Ray LaMontagne, Richard Hawley, Herbie Hancock, Glen Hansard and Aaron Dessner. Sea Sew went double platinum, was nominated for the Choice Music Prize and the Mercury Prize in the UK, and saw Lisa play bewitching guest spots on the likes of Later…With Jools Holland, The Late Late Show, The Tonight Show With Jay Leno and The Colbert Report. Lisa’s sophomore album, Passenger, released in October 2011, went straight in at Number 1 on its first week of release and earned Lisa yet another Choice Music Prize nomination
Lisa has since been stretching her musical expertise in many directions including lending her voice to two of Stephen Price soundtracks- Fury and the Oscar winning score for Gravity. Lisa also performed on the Oscar Nominated animation, Song of the Sea, this time not only singing but also making her acting debut alongside Brendan Gleeson.
