About this show

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. Called "Ireland's newest 'supergroup'...the hottest Irish acoustic band on the planet." by the Irish Voice, its members have helped form the backbone of some of the greatest Irish groups of the decade: Bassist Trevor Hutchinson was a key member of The Waterboys, and later he, with guitarist Donogh Hennessy, would form the dynamic rhythm section of The Sharon Shannon Band. Fiddler Sean Smyth is an All-Ireland champion who has played with Donal Lunny's Coolfin; Kevin Crawford, considered to be among the finest flutists in Ireland played with the acclaimed traditional group Moving Cloud; and, piper Cillian Vallely (of the same talented musical family as brother Niall Vallely of Nomos). "An amazing new instrumental quintet...state-of-the-art Irish music as aggressively infectious as you'll ever hear." - Dirty Linen "Lúnasa's musicianship is awesome ... I'd sell my soul to be able to play like that" - MOJO TABLE RESERVATIONS: 212-539-8776 Purchase of tickets does NOT guarantee a table reservation; you must call to reserve seats.
