    Irish singer-songwriter Lisa Hannigan’s critically acclaimed new album, ‘At Swim’, is available now through Play It Again Sam. Produced by Aaron Dessner (The National), her third, and arguably most bewitching record, follows the double-platinum, Choice Music Prize and Mercury-nominated debut ‘Sea Sew’, and 2011’s ‘Passenger’ (which charted at number 1 in Ireland, and earned Lisa another Choice Music Prize nomination).
    Hannigan first came to light as a somewhat mysterious figure singing harmonies alongside Damien Rice. She contributed significantly to Rice’s platinum-selling debut O and critically lauded follow up 9. They played together for seven years, but it wasn't until the release of her solo debut ‘Sea Sew’ that the full spectrum of her abilities became apparent.
    Lisa has since been stretching her musical expertise in many directions: collaborating with artists as diverse as Ray LaMontagne, Richard Hawley, Herbie Hancock and Glen Hansard. She made an acting debut as a mermaid in the Oscar-nominated animation ‘Song of the Sea’, and her haunting voice featured on soundtracks for the TV series ‘Fargo’ and the Oscar-winning score for ‘Gravity’, all the while founding and co-hosting the acclaimed ‘Soundings’ podcast (which saw Lisa turn interviewer, and speak to guests such as Harry Shearer, Sharon Horgan and David Arnold).

    Muireann Bradley is a 17 year old finger picking guitar player & singer from County Donegal. She performs Country Blues & Ragtime Blues from the 1920s & 30s, also Folk, Roots and Americana. She grew up with her father listening to these old records and playing and singing the music himself. When she was nine years old she asked him to teach her to play and so her love of guitar began. During the covid lockdowns she decided to start posting videos on You Tube, the first of which was her rendition of Blind Blake’s “Police Dog Blues”. It received a lot of attention, it’s now had 80,000 views. She was soon contacted by Josh Rosenthal of Tompkins Square Records who suggested she record an album which is now available now entitled “I kept these old blues”. Muireann Bradley will be performing a very exclusive show at The Ruby Room in Castlebar on March 31st Tickets are on sale now.
