Wallis Bird at the Electric Picnic

Saturday, 1 September, 2012

Set amid the rolling lawns of Stradbally Hall, Co Laois, a splendid 600 acre estate just 50 minutes from Dublin, The Electric Picnic has established itself as a special Irish festival. One of the artists taking part in this weekend’s Picnic fun is Wallis Bird from Wexford. Note: “Born left-handed, she lost five fingers of her left hand in a lawnmower accident, and having four sewn back on again. She became used to playing a right-handed guitar upside-down, which contributes to her unconventional style of playing.”
