Lisa Hannigan

Decided to resume the blog after seeing Irish singer/songwriter Lisa Hannigan at the Mod Club in Toronto on Saturday, October 15. An utterly compelling performer, with traces of Mary Margaret O’Hara, Feist, Kate Bush but uniquely herself. Overachieving band of multi-instrumentalists (including Ms. Hannigan), a quirky and delightful stage presence and fantastic voice. Great songs with interesting and sometimes off kilter lyrics. Not a great club for this kind of performer but she and the band made it work with what appeared to be almost no effort. What a night!
