Following a sold-out performance in 2015, Lunasa returns to BlackRock for another St. Patrick’s Day show!
Lúnasa is internationally acknowledged as being the finest Irish instrumental band of recent times. Named for an ancient Celtic harvest festival in honor of the Irish god Lugh, patron of the arts, Lúnasa is indeed a gathering of some of the top musical talents in Ireland. Its members have helped form the backbone of some of the greatest Irish groups of the decade, including The Water Boys, The Sharon Shannon Band, and Moving Cloud.
The band’s inventive arrangements and bass-driven grooves have steered Irish acoustic music into surprising new territory. The recordings have been hailed as some of the best and most important world music albums anywhere, while the blend of intelligence, innovation, virtuosity, and passion has brought them to the forefront of Celtic music. It’s no wonder that Folk Roots magazine has rightly termed them an “Irish music dream team.” The group has performed at such renowned venues as The Hollywood Bowl, the Sydney Opera House and the White House.
