The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - SEVEN DAYS -

It doesn’t hap­pen very of­ten that such a suc­cess­ful and ac­claimed song­writer as Lisa Han­ni­gan breaks away from the stan­dard al­bum/tour/al­bum tread­mill to per­form in venues the size of Whelan’s. To­day, Han­ni­gan puts in the over­time, as she has two shows – an al­lages 3pm one, and a later one from 8pm. Both shows are sold out, which is no sur­prise for a singer whose lat­est al­bum, At Swim, grad­u­ally creep up on you, its songs un­furl­ing its of­ten som­bre tales slowly but com­pellingly. See­ing her de­liver those songs, as well as se­lec­tions from her pre­vi­ous two al­bums, Sea Sew (2008) and Pas­sen­ger (2011), will be a treat rarely ex­pe­ri­enced.
