Recently, I discovered a young Irish singer-songwriter, named Lisa Hannigan. She was born the year before Anton, so I would guess I am a bit late in finding her and that she is pretty well known to a younger audience, at least in Ireland if not in the States yet. Her music falls under the label “folk, indie”, which is right up my alley – ‘old’ Joni Mitchell fan that I am! Lisa spent several years performing with Irish singer-songwriter Damien Rice, but then struck out on her own in 2008 with her solo debut CD, Sea Saw. Her voice is ethereal and floats like a cloud, but somehow her sound is strong and not overly ‘sweet’. Anyway, here for your enjoyment is a very cool video, which was filmed in a pub in Dingle!
