Lemoncello Live at The Grove

Laura Quirke and Claire Kinsella’s collaboration charms audiences into a

world of intimate observations and uncomfortable questions with

irresistible chemistry, charisma, and humour.* ‘Why are all the good men,

too old, taken or dead?’ *

The rare alchemy of the duo’s voices together cuts through a minimal and

dramatic soundscape; coloured by the warmth and grit of Kinsella’s Cello,

and distinctly underpinned by Quirke’s cyclical, trance-like guitar

playing. While embedded in Irish and Folk roots, Lemoncello’s sound

embraces the freedom of carving out its own song structures, entwined with

a love of off-kilter Indie Pop, Jazz extemporisation and Romantic and

Contemporary Classical music.

A vital voice in the thriving alternative folk scene in Ireland,

Lemoncello have been nominated for Best Folk Song and Best Emerging Folk

Act at the RTE Radio 1 Folk Awards and opened for and collaborated with

many esteemed artists such as Lisa O'Neill, Sam Amidon, Glen Hansard,

Cormac Begley & Joshua Burnside.

Their spell-binding performances evoking comparisons to luminaries of

Chanson Francaise Brel & Piaf, have led them to tour extensively in Ireland

and abroad; notably Dublin’s legendary Vicar Street, The Irish Arts Centre

NYC, The National Concert Hall and CCI Paris.
