From retiring homebird to wandering nomad, Lisa Hannigan has taken a bigger leap than most in 2012, trading her Dublin home of over a decade for the bright lights of… well, everywhere. Hot Press catches up with Ireland’s indie sweetheart to talk writing, rollercoasters and living out of a suitcase.
Thousands of hopeful Irish hearts ground to a thundering halt in March of this year, when Hot Press broke the news that Lisa Hannigan would be leaving Ireland’s soggy pastures for a new home far, far away. Dubliners could no longer daydream about bumping into the wide-eyed enchantress in their local pub, or, even better, finding her on their doorstep with a ukulele in one hand and a basket of puppies in the other.
Lisa Hannigan performs at Vicar St., Dublin on New Year’s Eve with Richie Egan, Jerry Fish, Rhob Cunningham, Gavin Glass, We Cut Corners, Cathy Davey, Neil Hannon and more. Passenger is out now on Hoop Recordings.
