Ihre Bühnenpräsenz ist schlicht eine Wucht ? innovativ und fesselnd. Was sie beispielsweise mit dem Nationalinstrument Irlands, der Harfe, zu spielen vermag, versetzt selbst Experten in Staunen. Nachdem man Lisas Harfenspiel gehört hat, sieht man dieses Instrument, das man gemeinhin mit traditioneller Musik und getragenen Klängen in Verbindung bringt, mit ganz anderen Augen. Egal ob es sich um eine hip-hoppige Eigenkomposition oder um einen gecoverten Ed Sheeran Song handelt, Lisa bietet absolute musikalische Perfektion. Und wer sich nicht vorstellen kann, wie sich ein Banjo in dieses Musikgebilde einfügt, der wird es nach einem Lisa Canny-Konzert wissen und restlos begeistert sein. Lisa Cannys musikalische Erfolge lassen aufhorchen: ? 7-Mal All Ireland champion auf der Harfe und dem Banjo ? UK Future Music Songwriting Gewinnerin 2016 ? 1st class honours B.A. Irish Music and Dance ? 1st class honours M.A. Ethnomusicology ? Event Industry Award Gewinnerin 2015 ? Touren in den U.S.A, Kanada, Europa & Russland als Lead Singer der Bands Celtic Crossroads & The Young Irelanders ? Auftritte vor 50.000 Menschen ? 2015 einen Top Ten Hit in Irland mit dem Song ?Lifeline?, geschrieben mit der Grammy-Gewinnerin Jodi Marr ? Von BBC America zu den Top Ten ?Irish acts you don?t want to miss? ernannt Wenn man 7 Mal die renommierten ?All Ireland Championships? gewonnen hat ? und das gleich auf 2 Instrumenten - dann ist es gar nicht mehr möglich, tief zu stapeln. Lisa ist im Nordwesten Irlands, in der Grafschaft Mayo, aufgewachsen und natürlich war ihr erster musikalischer Berührungspunkt die traditionelle Musik des Landes. Später hat sie an der ?Irish World Academy of Music and Dance? in Limerick studiert, einer Art ?Kaderschmiede? für talentierte junge Musiker/-innen. Aber die Irin hat sich musikalisch ständig entwickelt, hat anderen Stilrichtungen Raum gegeben und so ein Gesamtkunstwerk geschaffen, das aus einer Mischung aus irisch traditioneller Musik, Popmusik und Hip Hop besteht. Die Stilverschmelzung hat dazu geführt, dass namhafte Musikmanager wie Miles Copeland von der Band ?The Police?, Lisa als Irlands nächste große Musikerin auf der internationalen Bühne bezeichnen. Über 2 Millionen Online-Streams bezeugen, dass die Mulitinstrumentalistin und Songwriterin das internationale Parkett bereits erfolgreich beschritten hat.

Sunny tries to shine despite his troubled past in this third novel in the critically acclaimed Track series from National Book Award finalist Jason Reynolds. Ghost. Patina. Sunny. Lu. Four kids from wildly different backgrounds, with personalities that are explosive when they clash. But they are also four kids chosen for an elite middle school track team - a team that could take them to the state championships. They all have a lot to lose, but they all have a lot to prove, not only to each other but to themselves. Sunny is the main character in this novel, the third of four books in Jason Reynolds' electrifying middle grade series. Sunny is just that - sunny. Always ready with a goofy smile and something nice to say, Sunny is the chillest dude on the Defenders team. But his life hasn't always been sun beamy-bright. You see, Sunny is a murderer. Or at least he thinks of himself that way. His mother died giving birth to him, and based on how Sunny's dad treats him - ignoring him, making Sunny call him Darryl, never 'Dad' - it's no wonder Sunny thinks he's to blame. It seems the only thing Sunny can do right in his dad's eyes is win first place ribbons running the mile, just like his mom did. But Sunny doesn't like running, never has. So he stops. Right in the middle of a race. With his relationship with his dad now worse than ever, the last thing Sunny wants to do is leave the other newbies - his only friends - behind. But you can't be on a track team and not run. So Coach asks Sunny what he wants to do. Sunny's answer? Dance. Yes, dance. But you also can't be on a track team and dance. Then, in a stroke of genius only Jason Reynolds can conceive, Sunny discovers a track event that encompasses the hard beats of hip-hop, the precision of ballet, and the showmanship of dance as a whole: the discus throw. But as he practices for this new event, can he let go of everything that's been eating him up inside? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Guy Lockard.

Ice dancing is a form of figure skating which draws from the world of ballroom dancing. It was first competed at the World Figure Skating Championships in 1952, but did not become a Winter Olympic Games medal sport until 1976. As in pair skating, dancers compete as a couple consisting of a man and a woman. Ice dance differs from pair skating by having different requirements for lifts, requiring spins to be performed as a team in a dance hold, and by disallowing throws and jumps. Typically, partners are not supposed to separate by more than two arm lengths, originally, partners were supposed to be in a dance hold the entire program, though this restriction has been lifted somewhat in modern ice dancing.
