Laura Quirke (guitar, vocals ) and Claire Kinsella (cello, vocals ) - Lemoncello - who will play in Bridge St, Castlebar on Friday May 31, started performing together while studying music and languages in Maynooth University, Ireland. Harmonious vocal melodies simply accompanied by cello and guitar lend a sincere and honest rootsy sound, borrowing from a wide range of influences, traditional and alternative. The result is music described by Remy’s Music Blog as “soothing for the soul”.
In their relatively short life-span, LemonCello have played a sold out show in France at the beautiful Musée de La Piscine in Roubaix, supported Irish folk hero Damien Dempsey, played several music festivals across Ireland and helped start ‘Common Grounds Collective‘, a group dedicated to building a network of musicians of all genres and give them a platform to write and perform original works within a nurturing community environment.
LemonCello spent much of 2016 and 2017 writing material in France and Ireland, released their debut EP in April 2018 to critical acclaim.
