Turning Pirate presents
+ JOHN SMITH & JAKE CLEMONS.
Lisa Hannigan will be touring up and down the country for the summer, with the wonderful John Smith supporting, in a slightly more grown up version of her summer holidays.
“I’ve spent the last year travelling about and writing songs for my second record. During that time I met Joe Henry and from that moment I knew he was the man to help me make the record that was in my head.
I found a wonderful converted farmhouse studio in the middle of Snowdonia national park in Wales and we all headed over for a week. Gavin Glass played piano and banjo, Ross Turner was on drums, Shane Fitzsimons, double and electric bass, Donagh Molloy, harmonium and trumpet and an eight and a half months pregnant Lucy Wilkins played violin and arranged a couple of songs for cello and violin. John Smith joined for some guitar and general tomfoolery. The album will be out in the autumn and I can’t wait to get out and play the songs from it. ” – Lisa Hannigan
