About this Event

Lemoncello is the collaborative project of Irish songwriter Laura Quirke and cellist Claire Kinsella, nominated as ‘Best Emerging Folk Act’ in the RTÉ Radio 1 Folk Awards 2019. The pair started playing music together while at University, where they bonded over musical intricacies; close vocal harmonies, humour and vulnerability in lyric writing.

Their debut EP ‘Stuck Upon the Staircase’ was released in 2018, deemed by The Irish Times as ‘baroque folk good for the head and heart’ and The Thin Air as ‘cello, guitar and interweaving vocal motifs marrying in exquisite fashion’. Their performances, described by The Journal of Music as ‘ramshackle and sassy’, saw Lemoncello touring extensively in Ireland and abroad, most notably Other Voices, CCI, Paris and Irish Arts Centre, NYC, as well as appearing on national Irish & UK television and radio.

Collaboration with other artists has been a defining feature of Lemoncello’s creativity thus far. They have worked and shared stages with many inspiring artists, including David Keenan, Alannah Thornburgh (Alfi), music documentarian Myles O’ Reilly (Arbutus Yarns), Anna Mieke, Junior Brother, Gareth Quinn Redmond, Hatchlings, Sam Amidon, Mick Flannery, Lisa O' Neill, The Silken Same and poet, Stephen James Smith.

2020 sees Lemoncello releasing their anticipated second EP, ‘Oil and Water’.
