Irish singer/songwriter Lisa Hannigan first came to light as an angel-voiced, somewhat mysterious figure singing harmonies alongside Damien Rice. When their seven-year collaboration came to an end, Hannigan released her first solo album, Sea Sew (2008), and her sparkling solo career was born. The self-released album was a runaway success, nominated for a Choice award in Ireland and a Mercury Music Prize in the UK. While Sea Sew was a joyous kaleidoscope of love songs, laments, sea shanties and glockenspiels, her second release, Passenger (2011) explored deeper, darker emotions. After touring Passenger for two years, Hannigan found writing her next album very hard. During this difficult period she also lent her voice to the orchestral score of Alfonso Cuaron’s film Gravity, as well as providing the voice of the mermaid in the Oscar-nominated Irish animation Song of the Sea. When The National’s Aaron Dessner contacted her about working together, things began to fall into place and At Swim was released in August 2016. These songs travel even deeper into a darkly magical space where the boundaries between love and death, past and present, grief and happiness, are dissolved, so this intimate show promises to be a truly magical evening.
