Former Celtic Woman Lisa Lambe to Perform at Irish Arts Center

Former Celtic Woman Lisa Lambe to Perform at Irish Arts Center

Acclaimed Irish singer, actress and songwriter Lisa Lambe (Celtic Woman) will perform alongside collaborators Fiachna Ó Braonáin and Peter O'Toole (Hothouse Flowers) at Irish Arts Center from September 29-30.

These performances mark her US solo debut and will showcase her gentle, heartfelt world of song. Lambe's debut album, 2015's Hiding Away, was met with widespread praise. Recorded in Nashville, it features multi-Grammy winning musicians, with songs written by Lisa herself, American songwriters and the legendary Paul Brady. Lisa is currently an Artist in Residence at Killruddery House County Wicklow and is writing her second album.

Lisa is also respected for her stage work, performing in many theatres throughout Ireland including The Gate and The Abbey. Her TV/film work includes StoryLane, Olive, Bachelor's Walk, Legend, and Eye to Eye to name a few. For more information on Lisa Lambe, visit her official site.

Hothouse Flowers made a name for themselves in the late '80s and early '90s with a passionate, bombastic fusion of rock & roll with the rootsy sounds of Irish folk and American gospel. In 1986, Bono saw Hothouse Flowers performing on television and offered his support. They released their first single, "Love Don't Work This Way," on U2's Mother Records label, which quickly lead to a deal with the PolyGram subsidiary London Records.

Tickets for the performances start at $20 and are available by visiting www.IrishArtsCenter.org or by calling 866-811-4111. Irish Arts Center is located at 553 West 51st Street. Irish Arts Center programming is supported by Culture Ireland - Promoting Irish Arts Worldwide.

Founded in 1972, Irish Arts Center is a New York-based arts and cultural center dedicated to projecting a dynamic image of Ireland and Irish America for the 21st century, building community with artists and audiences of all backgrounds, forging and strengthening cross-cultural partnerships, and preserving the evolving stories and traditions of Irish culture for generations to come. Our multi-disciplinary programming is centered around three core areas: Performance - including live music, dance, theatre, film, literature, and the humanities; Exhibition - including visual arts presentations and cultural exhibitions that tell the evolving Irish story; and Education - with dozens of classes per week in Irish language, history, music, and dance.

Located in New York City, a global capital of arts and culture, Irish Arts Center serves as a dynamic platform for top emerging and established artists. Irish Arts Center is currently developing plans to construct a new facility to serve our multi-disciplinary program and will be the strongest possible gateway for artists to reach into our cultural community and nourish their work, to connect with our partner institutions who help them innovate, and to become visible in The New York City media market which enhances their ability to achieve U.S and further international success.

The New Irish Arts Center will contain a purpose-built, state-of-the-art contemporary performance space for music, dance and theatre seating up to 160; industry-standard back of house and support facilities to allow artists to achieve their vision; a second, intimate performance space - the renovated historic Irish Arts Center theatre - optimized for live music, literature, film, talks, large classes and special events; classrooms and studio space for community education programs in Irish music, dance, language, history, and the humanities, and for master classes and workshops by visiting and resident artists; technology capability to project the Irish Arts Center experience on the digital platform; an avenue-facing café lobby to engage with the neighborhood and provide a social setting for conversation and interaction between artists and audiences; a beautiful new courtyard entrance on 51st Street where the historic Irish Arts Center building and the new facility meet.
