Cork Roots Festival: Lemoncello (Sold Out)

Coughlan's, Douglas St.

Sun 19 May
8:00 pm
€15


Laura Quirke and Claire Kinsella’s collaboration charms audiences into a world of intimate observations and uncomfortable questions with irresistible chemistry, charisma, and humour. ‘Why are all the good men, too old, taken or dead?’

The rare alchemy of the duo’s voices together cuts through a minimal and dramatic soundscape; coloured by the warmth and grit of Kinsella’s Cello, and distinctly underpinned by Quirke’s cyclical, trance-like guitar playing. While embedded in Irish and Folk roots, Lemoncello’s sound embraces the freedom of carving out its own song structures, entwined with a love of off-kilter Indie Pop, Jazz extemporisation and Romantic and Contemporary Classical music.

A vital voice in the thriving alternative folk scene in Ireland, Lemoncello have been nominated for Best Folk Song and Best Emerging Folk Act at the RTE Radio 1 Folk Awards and opened for and collaborated with many esteemed artists such as Lisa O'Neill, Sam Amidon, Glen Hansard, Cormac Begley & Joshua Burnside.

Their spell-binding performances evoking comparisons to luminaries of Chanson Francaise Brel & Piaf, have led them to tour extensively in Ireland and abroad; notably Dublin’s legendary Vicar Street, The Irish Arts Centre NYC, The National Concert Hall and CCI Paris.

“They write like Wet Leg and sing like Laura Marling”

Joshua Burnside

“Every song is a banger, and every song sounds authentic and true. Lemoncello are a special pair of humans doing powerfully creative things”
