Listen to charity Christmas songs by Lisa Hannigan and The Lost Brothers


Lisa Hannigan has teamed up with An Post to raise funds for the Dublin Simon Community via Lisa singing a cover of ‘The Christmas Waltz’ as sung by Frank Sinatra in 1954. The song is featured on the ad for An Post and all €1 purchases of the track go towards Simon.

On a similar tip, the Lost Brothers’ regal harmonic folk is perfect for Christmas as is evident here on their charity single ‘Little Angel’. All proceeds go towards UNICEF from the sale of the track or you can donate directly.

The track was first written in demo form, seven years ago in Portland until the pair wrote it on a rocky trip across the Irish sea. It was recorded with Sean Coleman at Gavin Glass’s Orphan Studios with The Frames’ Graham Hopkins on drums, Michael Buckley and Ronan Dooney on brass (Glen Hansard’s band) arranging the brass, bass by Keith Farrell and The Lost Brothers on vocals and guitars. The B-side ‘St. Christopher’ is equally festive, an ode to Liverpool.
