“Vertiginous, violet-they scroll across the sky, words with wings VVV, whether wrens or angels one cannot determine, perhaps an alternate universe fusion of both, up down, high, low-dizzy, still; at peace, at war: redemption dreams arise from the clay: soul’s peace, as the bird in the bough its little eye closes slowly: all is chance, they say, indeed-save this, indisputably, O’ Neill’s Art’s gentle triumph.” – Pat McCabe

It’ll All Come Out in the Wash – A storyboard with Ingrid Lyons & Lisa O’Neill
Tickets €23 (including booking fee). Doors 7.30pm / show 8pm sharp
An exclusive event for the Dún Laoghaire Folk Fest following a recent Foggy Notions Artist Residency at the Pavilion Theatre. Acclaimed songwriter Lisa O’Neill and brilliant emerging writer Ingrid Lyons, will bring the worlds of music and literature together through a wildly imaginative and exploratory storyboard. Lisa is currently working on her fifth album due for release on the Rough Trade label. Ingrid Lyons is a fiction and arts writer who has contributed to some of Ireland’s leading art publications and written contextual essays for numerous art galleries and institutions. Ingrid is currently working on a collection of short stories.
Lisa, along with Colm Mac Con Iomaire, has a new tune out on Ergodos Records. It’s the first single from an upcoming compilation called In The Echo: Field Recordings from Earls Fort Terrace that is due out 30 September. You can listen to “Peggy Gordon” and preorder the album at Bandcamp. Read about the album here at Hot Press.
Last weekend Lisa performed an unreleased song ‘Goodnight World’ that she wrote for the play ‘The Boy Who Talked To Dogs’ which just finished a run at the Adelaide Festival in Australia. Unfortunately due to all the restrictions she couldn’t travel there to be a part of the team presenting the theatre piece, but she was delighted to play it in on the Tommy Tiernan show.
Lisa talked with Seán on RTÉ Arena about the musician, songwriter & humorist Ivor Cutler. You can listen back here.
