Lisa Lambe Nightvisiting

October 6 @ 8:30 pm 10:00 pm

Nightvisiting is a reimaging of the old Irish ballad repertoire and the concept of gathering with an audience to tell the old stories and sing the old songs, look at where the songs came from, why they were sung, celebrate them in a new musical reimagining and arrangements with some of Ireland’s finest traditional musicians. 

Some of these songs are written in archive manuscripts and have not been sung for 70 years. The idea of transmission to keep these songs alive, and important material being seen and heard again.

We’ll have renowned trad musician Aoife Granville on flute/fiddle who is going to join Lisa as a special guest. 

Lisa Lambe Nightvisiting

Based on her work with the National Folklore Collection and her recent M.A in Irish Folklore, internationally acclaimed Irish folk singer and actor Lisa Lambe brings us her new project ‘NightVisiting’, first commissioned by The National Famine Museum in Strokestown, County Roscommon. 

Lisa collaborates with renowned traditional musicians alongside local contributors to create a unique performance bespoke to each venue she visits. 

‘NightVisiting’ reconnects us to the social role that night time social house visits once played in our oral traditions and folklore, and in the preservation of our songs and stories from tender love songs to the bawdy, to songs of loss and longing. Lisa Lambe collaborates with renowned musicians and performers to create an evening celebrating the old songs, stories and tunes from around the hearth, bespoke to each location she visits. 

In the west, Nightvisiting is known as ‘Bothántaíocht’ or ‘Cuairtaíocht’, in the southern counties it is known as going ‘Scoraíochting’. In other counties; a visit to the Rambling House. 

NightVisiting’ will bring those who gather to the hearth of the rural house, to sing the old songs and tell the local stories, many now lost or forgotten. Night visiting was an important part of our social society and culture, which began to fade with the electrification of Ireland in the late 1940’s when the hearth slowly gave way to the ballroom, the public house and the dance hall. 

NightVisiting’ is a celebration and a reimagining of those nights of sharing the old songs and stories, not to be missed! Join us next 6th October!
