The album has received much acclaim and accolades including Album of the Week on BBC Radio London and Rough Trade’s New Rising Artist. A star across the Emerald Isle with a sizeable following in the US, and a voice that combines pure and sweet with powerful and husky with more than a hint in both sound and sass of Stevie Nicks, Joni Mitchell and Alison Krauss, we are delighted to welcome Lisa Lambe to the ICC this December.
