Lúnasa’s Cillian Vallely appears on the new Bruce Springsteen album ‘High Hopes’. The track “This Is Your Sword” features Lúnasa’s pipe player Cillian. The band have been described as one of the best Celtic bands in the world today and seems ‘The Boss’ Bruce Sprinteen has been paying attention to them as well.
Lúnasa are preparing for their arrival in Australia with several tour dates around the world including a recent performance at Celtic Connections & they have just touched down in Alaska for a run of dates before they arrive for appearance at Port Fairy Folf Festival and headline show in Melbourne & Sydney.
“One of Ireland’s most highly-acclaimed interpreters of the genre …an unmistakable authenticity.” The Examiner
“Ireland’s all-star acoustic band” Pollstar
“The group doesn’t just play jigs and reels as they have been handed down for generations … but rather more textured and nuanced variants of the Irish dance music, displaying not only their notable skills on their respective instruments, but also their creativity and arrangements.” Irish Central
