Lisa Hannigan releases tickets for an intimate UK tour, ahead of second album ‘Passenger.’

Lisa Hannigan brings her own brand of hypnotic and fascinating Folk, to selected venues across the UK this November. Backed by her ever brilliant and beaming band (Gavin Glass, Shane Fitzsimons etc), Hannigan will visit intimate and atmospheric spaces, including St Philip’s Church, Salford and St Paul’s, Birmingham. I do enjoy the gothic grandeur of a church or cathedral gig venue, especially if the reverberating sounds are of an acoustically soothing inclination.

Hannigan has just released the official video to ‘Knots’, another track from her much anticipated second album, ‘Passenger.’ The cute, Crayola-coloured quirky offering, features Hannigan; ukulele in hand, performing against a white backdrop, in a white dress…not for long. The video was directed by Myles O’Reilly , who has also produced several diary clips for Hannigan’s official website; documenting performances and rehearsals during the Irish folk-favourite’s album songwriting process. The video is sure to put a lighthearted and whimsical slant on the day of even the most grey of faces.

The tour takes in the following dates:

November 19th, 2011 – Birmingham, St Paul’s

November 20th, 2011 – Norwich, Arts Centre

November 21st, 2011 – York, The Duchess

November 23rd, 2011 – Glasgow, Oran Mor

November 25th, 2011 – Salford, St Philip’s Church

November 27th, 2011 – Bristol, St George’s

November 28th, 2011 – Brighton, Komedia

November 30th, 2011 – London, O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire
