We are delighted that this summer at Killruddery singer and actress Lisa Lambe will be Artist in Residence.
Lisa’s first album, ‘Hiding Away’, was recorded in Nashville and was received to much acclaim in Ireland , US and Europe. For her forthcoming album, Lisa is delighted to create,capture and record the project on home ground.

Lisa will be here at various times throughout the year with collaborators Martin Brunsden and Fiachna Ó Braonáin to explore and record new songsparks as they work towards their emerging new album. The trio have found in each other a natural simple symbiosis which draws on various musical roots to produce a gentle and heartfelt world of song

Martin plays double bass and singing saw. He has worked with holy men and women, artists, musicians, poets, sculptors and theatre companies – as well as a magnificent herd of children.

Fiachna has worked with African gospel singers, Moroccan tribesmen, Texan swingers and Irish balladeers as well as performing with his own band Hothouse Flowers for over thirty years. He also takes regular holidays on the radio!

Lisa has said that, “As an artist the magic, beauty, history and tranquillity all combine to inspire us greatly here in this special place. Fiachna, Martin and I are thrilled and delighted at this incredible opportunity to create and develop our music for our forthcoming album here in such a unique atmosphere. Killruddery House and Gardens is our oasis of creativity where time stands still to let the music flow freely in beautiful surroundings. It is part of the tapestry we weave.”

We can’t wait to hear what they weave but in the meantime have a listen to this:
