Lisa Playing in Gerry Diver's "SPEECH PROJECT" Ensemble...
It's been a pleasure to have been in workshop and rehearsal for this project over the last year. I have been playing hammered dulcimer and violin and a vocal appearance of a sort ?? in one of the pieces live. It's a fantastic suite of music conceived and created by Gerry involving some luminous Irish Musicians such as Shane MacGowan, Christy Moore, Martin Hayes and more. We debuted Speech Project with specially commissioned visuals at Liverpool Irish Festival in November which was absolutely thrilling and a real pleasure.
