Ms. Lauryn Hill is coming to Cork this June

The multi-Grammy winning artist is playing at Irish Independent Park, Cork on 26 June 2019.

Multi-Grammy winning artist, Ms. Lauryn Hill announced an outdoor concert at Irish Independent Park in Cork on 26 June 2019. The show will include music performances of great hits from The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill album and more.

 

Ms. Hill grew up in a home where the sound of music was a household staple. She very early, probably in the second or third grade, discovered a treasure chest’s worth of 45 singles that belonged to her mother and father that chronicled the lives and careers of some of the world’s most renowned and soulfully successful musicians-from like Sam Cooke, Nat King Cole, Miles Davis, Little Anthony and the Imperials, The Dreamlovers, Curtis Mayfield and The Impressions, The Temptations, The Four Tops, The Supremes, Stevie Wonder, Nina Simone and a plethora of other world-changing artists who were influencing music and recreating the world.

This love affair with music seemingly outside of her generational trajectory would extend in many different ways from jazz to soul, to reggae, to rock to classical. An eclectic appreciation and voracious appetite for good music trans-genre, Ms. Hill would establish her own categories that incorporated all types of unique and incredible sounds from both the past and the contemporaneous environment of her youth—this obviously included what was then known as hip-hop and R&B as well, but Puccini didn’t escape her either.

She was an interesting and powerful hybrid of musical influences (and stylistic mastery). These influences would dramatically shape her own approach to self- expression.

She established a reputation in the music world as the lone female member of The Fugees, whose record sales would make them the second biggest selling R&B act worldwide since Michael Jackson. She launched her solo career with the release of the commercially successful and critically acclaimed album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill. The recording earned a record-breaking five Grammy Awards.
