2016 saw the 5 times ‘Female Vocalist of the Year’ release her first live DVD, #LisaLive- which was recorded at her sell out performance in Marketplace Theatre Armagh, and her sixth album #LisaLive was released on February 10.

2017 is already shaping up to be another spectacular year for Lisa, with a guest appearance at the Country-to-Country Festival at the o2 Arena London next month, and a host of tour dates and dances all over the UK and Ireland.

Lisa’s upcoming Derry show will feature songs from her new album “#Country” and a mix of country up-tempo songs, ballads and country classics.
