Friday 19th December
Aiken Promotions present
Lisa O’Neill in concert
tickets €15 from www.ticketmaster.ie & outlets nationwide

Lisa O’Neill concludes a busy year with two Christmas concerts in two specifically chosen listening venues.

With her second album Same Cloth or Not, Lisa won over fans and critics alike. Her rich aged folk voice, melancholic melodies and brilliant lyrical wit marked her a genuinely unique Irish artist. Her live shows became much talked about affairs with the audience welling up one moment, and in stitches the next.

The album was recorded in a beautiful cottage rented in Wicklow in the winter months with David Kitt producing and Karl Oldum engineering and includes her regular band-mates Stina Sandstrom (vocals), Mossy Nolan (bouzouki). Since the recording Aoife O’Sullivan (violin/viola) and Kevin Kelleher (trumpet) has joined the live band.

“…instantly silences the room with her remarkable voice. her song craft and performance capabilities really are extraordinary.” Eamon Sweeney, Irish Independent
“O’Neill is real. Her songs poetry. Her gift, of the ages. It’s possible she’s the most important artist out of Ireland for decades.” – Eamon Carr, The Herald ****

“One of the most outstanding Irish albums of the year.”- Lauren Murphy, The Irish Times ****

Mongoose are a group of four women who play and, possibly more importantly, sing their own original songs with a sense of fun and professionalism that is fast leaving their competitors in their tracks. Although only formed a few short years ago, Mongoose have made a name for themselves for fusing folk, jazz and pop through their own excellent songs, their dynamic four part harmonies and their ear for catchy melodies and immediately arresting hooks. Unorthodox instruments and a fun night are the only things we guarantee – everything else will be a great surprise.

So much of a success during the 2014 that we asked them to come and do it all over again. Thankfully they agreed. Benjamin and David, better known in opera and classical music circles, shair with us their mutual appreciation for comedy art song, particularly that from the US and UK since the 1940s. Focusing on the work of Flanders & Swann and Tom Lehrer, the duo have found more from their library – a hilarious evening.
