    Lisa finished her tour with a sold-out show at Vicar Street in Dublin. She also performed an emotional rendition of “Fairytale Of New York” with Glen Hansard and members of The Pogues and The Dubliners at Shane MacGowan’s funeral in Co. Tipperary.
    Amongst the wealth of praise for All Of This Is Chance, Gideon Coe at BBC 6 Music picked it as his Album of the Year. It was No. 3 in Mojo Magazine’s Folk Albums of the Year, No. 24 in their main Albums of the Year List, Bob Boilen at NPR deemed it his No. 3 Album of the Year, and it was one of Songlines’ Top 10 Albums of the Year and Uncut Magazine’s No. 17 Album of the Year, and No. 33 with The Quietus.
     Recently, actors Margot Robbie and Cillian Murphy both spoke of their love of her music in a radio interview. Lisa began 2024 on tour in Australia and New Zealand, a year which also sees her take on the prestigious role of a Fellow of The Seamus Heaney Centre in Belfast.
     A raconteur in the truest sense of the word, O’Neill is a five-time BBC Folk Award nominee and her previous album, Heard a Long Gone Song, was named The Guardian’s 2019 Folk Album of the Year. Her adaptation of Bob Dylan’s “All the Tired Horses” soundtracked the final scene of the epic TV drama Peaky Blinders.
