In October 1997, Ireland's all-star quintet Lúnasa released their début CD.
Since that auspicious beginning, Lúnasa has become one of the most sought-after bands on the international Celtic music scene. The band's inventive arrangements and bass-driven grooves steered Irish acoustic music into surprising new territory.
On their first American visit, word-of-mouth led to sold-out shows and rave reviews. "A standing-room only crowd in New York confirmed Lúnasa's reputation" … wrote The New York Times.
"This is the hottest Irish acoustic group on the planet."
