Celebrating St. Patrick’s Day!
Formed in 1997, Lúnasa has long been one of contemporary Irish music’s leading voices. The group that Folk Roots magazine once called an “Irish music dream team” was formed from members of some of Ireland’s greatest bands and over the years has proven its mettle time and again, having sold over a quarter of a million records, and collaborated with artists outside the tradition such as Natalie Merchant, Mary-Chapin Carpenter, and Tim O’Brien. They have performed more than 2,000 shows across 36 countries including Carnegie Hall, The Hollywood Bowl, National Concert Hall (Dublin), and many of the leading festivals such as Glastonbury.
