Traditional Irish Music
Described by the Irish Times as the finest singer and actor of her generation, Lisa Lambe is now poised to attract a global audience with her forthcoming album, Juniper. Lisa says she imagined Juniper as a colorful story of nature, time and place: “The title track was sparked by a boldly gnarled juniper tree I spotted on an isolated bog road.”
Juniper is Lisa’s sophomore album and she embarked upon it with producer Karl Odlum in 2019. It was written in the west of Ireland and recorded at the remote Attica Studios in County Donegal. Lisa describes the eleven-song collection as “a love letter to nature”. Her songwriting, although inspired by the Irish landscape and surroundings, is also thoroughly universal, modern and international.
It’s no surprise that Lisa’s new songs conjure moods and visions: she graduated Trinity College Dublin with distinction as an actor, working with Ireland’s national theatre and starring in many smash hit plays. In 2019 alone she was on stage at The Abbey in two roles written specifically with her in mind: playing Lil in an adaptation of Edna O’Brien’s classic feminist novel The Country Girls, and as Cathy in a production of Dermot Bolgers’ Last Orders At The Dockside. Both were well-received by audiences and media alike, with Country Girlsespecially receiving numerous accolades.
