About the Event
The band dubbed “the hottest Irish acoustic group on the planet” returns to the Camden Opera House!
The band is internationally acknowledged as being one of the finest traditional Irish instrumental outfits of recent times. They are renowned for their stunning shows honed by superb musicianship and a constant touring cycle. They have performed over 1,500 shows across 36 countries since the band formed in 1997. The band has appeared at internationally renowned venues such as The Hollywood Bowl, National Concert Hall (Dublin), Sydney Opera House, and Moscow International House of Music. They have been invited to appear at the White House.
Their inventive arrangements and bass driven grooves have steered Irish acoustic music into surprising new territory. Their recordings 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 touring personnel is composed of Kevin Crawford (flutes, low whistles and tin whistles), Trevor Hutchinson (double bass), Ed Boyd (guitar), Colin Farrell (fiddle and whistles) and Cillian Vallely (uilleann pipes and low whistles).
With opener Ashley Davis!
