Laura Quirke (guitar, vocals) and Claire Kinsella (cello, vocals) started performing together while studying music and languages in Maynooth University. Their thoughtfully crafted lyrics sung in harmony, combined with cello and guitar instrumentation create a rooted, original sound. LemonCello draw from a wide range of influences including traditional and alternative folk music, jazz, pop, blues and classical music. The result is music described by Remy’s Music Blog as “soothing for the soul, and impeccably performed on their respective instruments”.
Their musical adventure so far has consisted of playing a sold out show at the beautiful Musée de La Piscine in Roubaix, France, support slots for the likes of Damien Dempsey, and appearances at several Irish music festivals including Electric Picnic and the Borris House Festival of Writing and Ideas.
