Wallis Bird to Appear at the Bank of New Hampshire Stage
Berlin (Germany)-based, Irish musician Wallis Bird will be appearing at the Bank of New Hampshire Stage (Concord, NH) on Friday, August 23, 2019 at 8PM.
Wallis Bird lost all the fingers on one hand in a bizarre lawnmower accident as a baby. Though most of her fingers were saved through surgery, one was lost for good. Happily it didn't stop her picking up a guitar as a child, flipping it upside down to strum with her damaged hand, and carrying on as if nothing had ever happened. Over a career beginning in 2006, Bird has won two Meteor Awards, Ireland's annual music prize - most recently for Best Female Artist - and a prestigious 2017 German "Musikautorenpreis" (Music Author Prize), as well as picking up two further nominations for Ireland's equivalent to Britain's Mercury Prize, the Choice Music Prize. She's also delivered five albums, performing some 800 shows this past decade alone.
