Visible Women at Liverpool Irish Festival
Bringing together three unique music artists, Visible Women shows off the contemporary talents of Irish singer-songwriters Maz O’Connor, Laura Duff and headliner Lisa O’Neill.
Hosting the evening is a bilingual spoken-word artist, broadcaster Ciara Ní É, supported by Irish television broadcaster TG4. With two hours of music, this is set to be an evening of musical adventure and lyrical storytelling, all tied up with a beautiful Gaelic twist.
Are you into music by women for everyone? Do you want to support emerging talent? Are you riding the (fourth) wave of Feminism? Then this evening is just for you, your friends and your family!
The incredible Lisa O'Neill has been shortlisted for several BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, including Best Album for 'Heard a Long Gone Song', Folk Singer of the Year, best original track for 'Blackbird' and best traditional track for 'Factory Girl'. A really incredible album, 'Heard a Long Gone Song' is a stripped back sound, Irish trad is the most wonderful sense with heartfelt lyrics and gut wrenching sound.
Maz O'Connor's new album comes out On October 25th, just two days after this gig. So fair to say she'll be focusing on the new stuff! From the Lake District, Maz has been writing and touring since her last album release in 2016. The first single from 'Chosen Daughter' is 'San Francisco'.
Laura Duff is an artist from Limerick. Her debut single is 'Up to You'. She won the 2015 Paul Clancy Young Songwriter Award.
