LemonCello /  Maynooth, Ireland Alternative Folk, Singer/Songwriter

Laura Quirke (guitar, vocals) and Claire Kinsella (cello, vocals) 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 result is music described by Remy’s Music Blog as “soothing for the soul”.
In their relatively short life-span, LemonCello have played a sold out show in France at the beautiful Musée de La Piscine in Roubaix, supported Irish folk hero Damien Dempsey, played several music festivals across Ireland, and helped start ‘Common Grounds Collective‘, a group dedicated to building a network of musicians of all genres, and give them a platform to write and perform original works within a nurturing community environment.
LemonCello spent much of 2016 writing material in France and Ireland and are now preparing to record debut EP.

Review of LemonCello in Whelans
Review of LemonCello in Whelans

"The night kicked-off with alt-folk duo LemonCello accompanied by harpist Alannah Thornburgh. With the upstairs venue in Whelan's already packed, the trio provided a set of songs that was both soothing for the soul, and impeccably performed on their respective instruments. It was beautiful, and Quirke's vocals were notably powerful when called upon, although I'm a sucker for strings on any occasion, here LemonCello gave a highly enjoyable performance, all at ease and delivering a sound that was so impressive."
