Lyrebird Presents at Meeniyan – Lisa O’Neill (Ireland)
Ireland’s Lisa O’Neill, one of the most striking folk singers today, performing at Meeniyan Town Hall
Ireland’s Lisa O’Neill is one of the most striking folk singers performing today. Transcendent and original, her inimitable voice is raw, evocative and laden with emotion.
O’Neill has been lauded by artists and critics alike. The Edge called hers “a unique voice in Irish songwriting”, Cillian Murphy opined “She’s an extraordinary singer songwriter”, while Iggy Pop gushed “Beautiful, what a strong, beautiful voice”. The New York Times declared “O’Neill is a cultural hero in her own right” and NPR Music’s Bob Boilen called O’Neill’s music “stunning, cinematic”.
Uncut called O’Neill’s mesmeric new LP (her first for indie titans, Rough Trade), “The first indisputable classic of 2023”, and the album is a lock for year-end best of lists. Check out the lead single, “Old Note”, a true shimmer of beauty, along with her remarkable adaptation of Bob Dylan’s “All The Tired Horses” for the final scene of epic TV drama, Peaky Blinders
“Uncompromising, stunning, soul-shaking stuff.” – The Guardian, Folk Album of the Year
Don’t miss Lisa O’Neill as she lets her wild loveliness rip.
