Lisa Hannigan with "Anahorish" live on TV Noir, the living room of the songwriters.

Anahorish, a small parish in Northern Ireland, is honored for the second time. As early as 1972, the poem by the poet Seamus Heaney appeared in the collection "Wintering Out". Over 20 years later, in 1995, he was to be honored with the Nobel Prize for Literature.

"Anahorish, my place of clear water, the first hill in the world where springs washed into the shiny grass and darkened cobbles in the bed of the lane. Anahorish, soft gradient of consonant, vowel-meadow, after-image of lamps swung through the yards on winter evenings. With pails and barrows those mound-dwellers go waist-deep in mist to break the light ice at wells and dunghills. "

And another 20 years later, a nervous Lisa Hannigan comes across the poem - she actually wants to study English literature for her degree. But the poet never lets go of her, inspires her, and so she takes his lyrics as an impetus for her stalled work on the new album. "Anahorish" made it not only on their album "At Swim", but also on the TV Noir show and on the stage at Heimathafen Neukölln in Berlin.
