Celebrate St. Patrick's Day with Lunasa!
“This is the hottest Irish acoustic group on the planet.”
One of Ireland’s most successful musical exports, Lúnasa has no intention of taking their foot off the Celtic pedal. Lúnasa are internationally acknowledged as being the finest Irish instrumental band of recent times and they’re coming to The Centenary Stage for a St. Patrick’s weekend celebration to remember on Saturday, March 15th at 8 pm at The Lackland Center. On their first American visit, word-of-mouth led to sold-out shows and rave reviews. The New York Times wrote,
Lúnasa'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. The band has performed over 1,500 shows across the globe since the band formed in 1997 and appeared at internationally renowned venues such as The Hollywood Bowl, National Concert Hall, Dublin and the Sydney Opera House and were invited to appear at the White House in 2011.
