In Photos: Agnes Obel + Polly Barrett @ Vicar Street, Dublin (10.12.11)
Danish songstress Agnes Obel played her biggest Irish headline show to date recently at Dublin's Vicar Street. The singer's four-date December tour was no less than her sixth visit of 2011 to these shores, an indication both of how much graft she's been putting in on the road and of just how rapidly her star has risen in the last twelve months.
Obel's enchanting debut LP, Philharmonics, has scaled the upper reaches of charts right across Europe, so it was hardly surprising that the bulk of her Vicar Street set was drawn from that record. Support on the night came from book-fixated Cork singer-songwriter Polly Barrett, and we had Alessio Michelini on hand to snap a few shots of both artists for us.
