On her debut Australian headline tour, Irish singer-songwriter Lisa Hannigan brought the show with special guest John Smith to Lizotte’s Newcastle last Sunday night. We made the trip into Lizotte’s to catch Lisa Hannigan live for the first time and were instantly spellbound by this talented classic Irish beauty with a hauntingly beautiful voice, that had the entire theatre in awe right from the first song, ‘Fall’ the opening track from Hannigan’s stunning new album ‘At Swim’…
….Going on from there to showcase ‘At Swim’ almost in its entirety, with a sprinkling of tracks from her first two albums ‘Passenger’ and ‘Sea Sew’. Just a sensational night of live music!
British Folk, singer-songwriter John Smith set the tone of the night brilliantly with a superb opening set.
