The independent release of her debut EP Wildflower in 2020 saw stunning newcomer and multi-instrumentalist Lorraine Nash quickly become one of the most played female artists on Irish radio regularly featuring on RTÉ Radio 1 playlists.
A spellbinding, live-streamed set at Cork Opera House in December 2020 by the Kerry singer songwriter led to her signing with FIFA Records. She joined Triskel for an online concert in June 2021 and now joins us in person for one performance only.
Lorraine’s vocal emanates from soulful place, somewhere between Tracy Chapman and Gillian Welch, and is perfectly suited to a musical palate that evokes Americana and folk tones. Performing since she was 7 years old, Lorraine is a talented pianist, guitar, harp, flute and violin player, skills that she has brought to the recording studio to create her debut EP. Equally at home in Irish Trad, Lorraine’s original material brings a mix of musical styles to the table while ensuring that her own unique voice and élan comes through unmistakably.
Lorraine is currently releasing new material from her impending debut long player due out later this year. Keep an eye out for this unique singer as she is set to perform at several special festival events throughout the summer of 2021.
