Since that auspicious beginning, Lúnasa has become one of the most sought-after bands on the international Irish music scene. The band’s inventive arrangements and bass-driven grooves are steering 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."
"Not since the debut of Solas has an Irish traditional band been as lavishly praised as has Lunasa since its 1997 eponymous debut....Lunasa brings the world of traditional Irish music some sweet fruits indeed." – THE BOSTON HERALD
