Imagining Ireland: Paul Noonan, Lisa Hannigan, Mmoths (J Colleran), Saint Sister, Seamus Fogarty, Brian Deady, Loah, Mango Dassle, Dowry, Stephen James Smith & more
Some of Ireland’s finest contemporary musicians – led by Bell X1’s Paul Noonan and Lisa Hannigan – come to London.
This event takes place at Barbican Centre, which has achieved Silver Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
Paul Noonan holds a unique territory in the Irish rock landscape – as lead singer of Bell X1 he has been a household name for almost 20 years and remains keenly relevant to this day.

Described by the New York Times as 'exquisitely ethereal', Hannigan's chance meeting with singer-songwriter Damien Rice led to a long period of collaboration and development that included Rice's critically acclaimed albums O and 9.
Lisa Hannigan tour dates
Saint Sister, formed in November 2014, is the creation of Morgan MacIntyre and Gemma Doherty. Their music draws from early Celtic harp traditions, 60s folk and electronic pop to create ‘atmosfolk' - a mix of soulful vocal harmonies, dreamy synth and electro-acoustic harp.
Following an early performance on Irish national television, one of their first gigs saw them open the stage for Arcade Fire’s Will Butler.

Seamus Fogarty hails from the west of Ireland and writes songs about mountains that steal t-shirts, women who look like dinosaurs and various other unfortunate incidents.
‘Singer-songwriter Seamus Fogarty is a no-nonsense operator with a fine handle on strong, melodic, powerful folk, country and blues'

The long-awaited second album Non-Fiction from Brian Deady has been met with wide critical acclaim from the likes of The Sunday Times calling it 'Bare-Knuckle and Remarkable' and The Irish Times stating 'Ireland has a new soul star in its midst'.

Irish singer-songwriter. Maria’s signature fragile vocal tone as well as her incredibly earnest songwriting has likened her to Lucy Rose and Billie Marten.

Jack Colleran first appeared as Mmoths as a teenage producer of emotionally-charged downbeat electronica and quickly established himself as a purveyor of textured and layered pop electronica.
The Mmoths project culminated in a long-player called Luneworks that was already a departure from the early releases so with time and development, it has made sense that the name has been shedded in favour of his own name.
The music J Colleran makes now is less immediate, more sweeping, more contemporary ambient than purely pop.
