Had the pleasure of seeing Lissie twice this week. She supported Mumford and Sons on Monday night and then had her own headline slot at the Black Box in Belfast on Wednesday night as part of the Open House Festival.
Having listened to her album a fair bit there were no doubts about her talent but live, she is an even better experience. Her voice is simply incredible and having the pleasure of photographing her, perched as I was on the edge of the stage, was such an intimate experience.
Finally, it would be remiss of me not to mention Napoleon, who provided superb support (and were well supported – nice to see a big crowd down early). Starting off quite gently with country flavours, the energy soon ramped up and despite a couple of tech issues, delivered a superb set. You can check them out here.
