SongLives

Saturday, November 1 | 8 pm
Emmett Tinley and Lisa O’Neill

SongLives showcases Ireland's greatest contemporary songwriters, bringing the rich tradition of busking on Dublin’s Grafton Street to New York City. Each performance concludes with a wonderful and rare one-off collaboration between the artists fueled by improvisation, experimentation and innovation.

Curated by Grammy Award-winner Susan McKeown

Emmet Tinley

“Up there with…Rufus Wainwright or Jeff Buckley. Truly sublime.” - The Irish Times

“Gorgeous…meticulously crafted pop.” - Billboard Magazine

Singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Emmett Tinley is best known as frontman for the folk/indie band The Prayer Boat and later for his solo work, where he was nominated for the Choice Music Prize (the Irish Mercury Prize) for Best Irish Album. Born in Chicago, Illinois but raised in Co. Wicklow, Tinley has travelled extensively and lived in many different places, inspiring his music. His voice has been likened to that of Jeff Buckley, Thom Yorke, Chris Martin of Coldplay and Fran Healy of Travis, and The Irish Independent says he “possesses a range that would make opera singers weep.” Don’t miss his appearance in SongLives in advance of the release of his third solo album.

Lisa O’Neill

“O’Neill is one of the most captivating singer-songwriters around.” – The Irish Times

“Spellbinding voice, smashing songs and powerful live performance.” – The Ticket

Hailing from Co. Cavan, Lisa O’Neill’s haunting voice and witty observations on modern Irish life have gained her worldwide popularity. From Body & Soul to Electric Picnic to an impromptu seisiún, Lisa’s live performances are beguiling affairs of banter and old-style folk intimacy. Over the last couple of years she has toured North America, Canada, Europe Scotland & the UK, opening for David Gray, Mick Flannery, Angel Olsen, and Glen Hansard. Subtle enough for tender reminiscence and powerful enough to bring the house down, Lisa’s voice is an instrument unto itself.

Past performers include Susan McKeown, Declan O’Rourke, Michael Brunnock, Brendan O’Shea, Mark Geary, Ann Scott, Niall Connolly, Wallis Bird, Anthony Mulcahy, Mundy, The Guggenheim Grotto, Jenna Nichols, Heathers, Gerry Leonard, Eleanor McEvoy, Warren Malone, John Spillane, Eamon O'Tuama, Mick Flannery, Casey Black, Maria Doyle Kennedy, Mark Dignam, Jean Rohe, SJ McArdle, Brandon Wilde, Casey Neill, Penny O'Brien, Fiach Moriarty, and Róisín O
