Through her performances with Honeyfeet, and collaborations with the Cinematic Orchestra's Stuart McCallum, Connolly has already set a high standard as a band leader and vocalist. Often confounding audiences with her “audacious” talent. With her new solo project Black Lung, Connolly finally has the perfect medium for her soaring vocals – Cello, Saxophone, Piano, Double Bass, Tabla, Kit, Uilleann Pipes, Bódhran, Banjo, Button Accordion, Guitar, Flute and Fiddle, providing a 'spell-binding' platform for Ríoghnach to weave centuries-old stories of love and loss, treachery and murder, and to hypnotise the way that only folk music can.
