Lisa Null has been a mainstay and an inspiration for folk music fans in the DC area and on the national folk music scene for more than 40 years. Lisa performs traditional folksongs from North America, Ireland, and Great Britain. She is a strong singer whose indomitable spirit shines through every song she performs. Lisa brings a deep, scholarly interest to bear on her material and has a background in folklore and history, both of which she taught at Georgetown University for several years. In addition to being a performer and teacher, she also is a “song-catcher” who traveled to Ireland to help record Seamus Ennis, the great folklore collector and master of the Irish bagpipes. Ennis urged her to explore the wonderful but neglected trove of American-Irish traditional song, which has formed an important part of her repertoire ever since. She also sings her own songs, a variety of historical and good-time “chorus” songs, and many old-timey country numbers.
