Based on her work with the National Folklore Collection and her recent MA in Irish Folklore, internationally acclaimed Irish folk singer and actor Lisa Lambe brings us her new project, NightVisiting. Lisa collaborates with renowned traditional musicians alongside local contributors to create a unique performance bespoke to each venue she visits celebrating the old songs, stories and tunes from around the hearth.
NightVisiting reconnects the audience to the social role that nighttime house visits once played in our oral traditions and folklore, and in the preservation of our songs and stories from tender love songs to the bawdy, to songs of loss and longing.
