In 2015, Lisa Hannigan made her film debut, providing the voice for a Selkie -- that is to say, a mermaid -- in the Oscar-nominated Irish animation 'Song of the Sea.' Anyone who knows her music will recognize this as an inspired bit of casting. The sea recurs constantly as an image in her work, a great unknowable that can drown us or can bring us together, as a songwriter, she has the mermaid-like ability to go to places where, strictly speaking, we shouldn't be able to go.
