Recently awarded Best Original Track at the RTÉ Radio 1 Folk Awards (along with a record breaking five nominations, to go with this year's four BBC Folk Award nods) Lisa O'Neill follows her acclaimed album Heard a Long Gone Song with a new EP - 'The Wren, The Wren' released on Rough Trade's traditional music imprint River Lea. "The three songs on this EP are woven together by a mixture of memory and myth. Facts often get lost in folklore which is maybe what gives way to artistic license to rewrite stories and bring them up to date… 'The Wren, The Wren' goes so far back that we don't know where or how it originated. It is a bird steeped in myth, folklore and tradition and through the ages has been revered as a symbol of fertility in many cultures, or as in this song, sacrificed even though it is the 'King of the Birds'.
