Laura Quirke and Claire Kinsella started performing
together while studying music and languages in Maynooth
University, Ireland. Harmonious vocal melodies simply
accompanied by cello and guitar, lend a sincere and
honest rootsy sound. Borrowing from wide range of influences,
traditional and alternative, the duo create an immersive
experience through a dynamic expression of lyrical story.
Their writing weaves their personal insights of human
nature & behaviour with the imagery of the contrasting
modern and natural world that surrounds them.
In their relatively short lifespan, Lemoncello have
played a sold out show in France at the beautiful Musée
de La Piscine in Roubaix, supported renowned Irish songwriters
Mick Flannery & Damien Dempsey, & helped form
'Common Grounds Collective', a group dedicated to building
a network of musicians of all disciplines, giving them
a platform to create and showcase original works within
a nurturing community environment.
Their debut EP "Stuck Upon the Staircase"
was released on April 26, 2018, earning radio play on
stations such as RTÉ Radio 1 and FM104. They
followed this with a successful tour of intimate venues
around Ireland. They are set to play a variety of Irish
festivals this summer before going into preparation
for the release of their second EP, due for release
in early 2019.
"Lemoncello's blend of mystical & contemporary
folk sounds conjure images of moving Harry Clarke characters
from ancient Irish folklore. It is colourful, thought-provoking
