Description

Please note the change of venue to advertised. Please arrive at 12:45 pm to be guaranteed a seat, thank you.


Lisa Knapp, an award winning artist, has established herself as one of the brightest and most innovative stars of a newly invigorated British Folk movement. Lisa has found herself drawn to the honesty of folk ballads and Irish fiddle tunes. Working with partner and producer - Gerry Diver - she has forged a new, inventive path through these old songs which is uniquely hers.

Gerry is an Irish fiddler/composer and award winning producer. His last solo album, ‘Speech Project’ explored the inherent musicality of speech. The album featured archive recordings of Margaret Barry and Joe Cooley as well as guest appearances from Shane MacGowan, Christy Moore, Martin Hayes and Damien Dempsey. Gerry recently co-scored (alongside David Holmes) the soundtrack to ‘Death & Nightingales’ and has recently been performing with Damon Albarn’s supergroup - The Good the Bad & the Queen.

“Knapp and Diver deliver ancient tradition with respect and beauty.”
