Low Ticket Warning!
Lúnasa is widely acknowledged as being the finest traditional Irish instrumental band of recent times, renowned for stunning shows honed by superb musicianship, usually held in much larger venues than ours. Lúnasa’s inventive arrangements and bass driven grooves have steered Irish acoustic music into surprising new territory. Their recordings have sold over a quarter of a million, have been hailed as some of the best and most important world music albums anywhere, while their blend of intelligence, innovation, virtuosity, and passion has brought them to the forefront of Celtic music. Lúnasa is Kevin Crawford (flutes, low whistles and tin whistles), Trevor Hutchinson (double bass), Ed Boyd (guitar), Seán Smyth (fiddle and low whistle), and Cillian Vallely (uilleann pipes and low whistles). Christmas with Lúnasa will feature traditional Irish music and Karan Casey, one of the genre's most innovative and provocative voices. 8pm. $35, $33 mbrs. & stus. Adv tix sug.
“The best Irish traditional music band in the world right now. One of the band’s greatest collective talents is their ability to pull off technically difficult and precise music with a casual, fun air, almost as if the five met for the first time with their various instruments at a pub and joined together spontaneously for a session.” The Wild Geese.com
“ …. this sixth recording by Lunasa reaffirms their reputation as the best Irish traditional instrumental band on the planet.” THE IRISH ECHO
“... Lúnasa have embarked on another journey, full of hairpin bends and vertiginous peaks, fueled by an insatiable appetite for reconnoitering routes previously uncharted .” THE IRISH TIMES
