Irish acoustic band Lúnasa’s complex arrangements and unique sound reshaped the boundaries of traditional music, energizing audiences the world over. Folk Roots magazine described the group, formed in 1997 from members of some of the greatest Irish groups of the previous decade, as the “Irish music dream team.”

One of the most influential bands in the history of traditional music, they’ve collaborated with Natalie Merchant, Mary-Chapin Carpenter and Tim O’Brien and performed at the Hollywood Bowl, Carnegie Hall and Glastonbury Festival.

Lúnasa’s current lineup features: bassist Trevor Hutchinson, who achieved fame with the The Waterboys; piper Cillian Vallely, who was a member of Riverdance and recorded with Bruce Springsteen; flute player Kevin Crawford, one of Ireland’s greatest flute players and a former member of Moving Cloud; award-winning fiddler Colin Farrell, who has toured with Project West, Grada and Michael McGoldrick; and guitarist Ed Boyd made a name for himself in the UK folkscene with bands such as Flook, Kate Rusby and Cara Dillon.

 Get ready for an energetic performance from one of the highest-profile traditional Irish bands around!
