The Everyman and Islander are following up the success of their first Behind the Curtain event with a performance from Lisa Hannigan, who will be video streaming live from The Everyman stage, on Friday, May 7 at 8pm.
This will be the second of their live-streamed monthly Friday night sessions and follows an event from The Corner House pub on Good Friday.
Sophie Motley, Artistic Director of The Everyman, said they are looking forward to Lisa’s performance.
“Lisa is an astounding artist and we’re thrilled to have her lighting up the Everyman Stage in May for viewers and listeners at home," she said. "Our new state-of-the-art live streaming equipment means that her work can be brought to more people who simply have to log on and listen from home.”
Jonathan Pearson from Islander said Behind the Curtain is a great concept for all musicians.
"From The Corner House's legendary trad session to one of Ireland’s gems Lisa Hannigan on The Everyman's beautiful stage, we hope to bring a bit of light to these heavy times we're in,” he said.
