N.C Lawlor would hesitate to self apply the term singer songwriter, any more than song and dance man. Especially being a resident of Dublin where there exists more singer songwriters than migrant workers. Turn over any rock in Dublin city and there you will find him. He has played and busked in all manner of cheap restaurants, side streets, bars and music venues. In recent years he has opened for some of the artists he admires, Billy joe Shaver, Jim Lauderdale, James Burton and Sea-Sick Steve. N.C Lawlor has found himself in much demand as a session player, though if you want to find him he’ll probably be performing in Dublin's Grafton Street where he has been resident for the passed 15 years or so.
