Winter Solstice Tour with special guests Dave Curley and Caitlin Warbelow
Named for an ancient Celtic harvest festival, Lúnasa was formed in 1997 from members of some of the greatest Irish groups of the previous decade. From the start, the band’s complex arrangements and unique sound reshaped the boundaries of traditional music and energized audiences the world over. Having since sold over a quarter of a million records and performed over 2,000 shows, Lunasa has won multiple awards and become one of the most influential bands in the history of traditional music.
Lúnasa are joined for their 2020-2021 winter season by the award winning Irish singer Dave Curley, a multi-instrumentalist, singer and dancer from Corofin, Co. Galway. Curley has been making big waves in the Irish music scene in Ireland, Europe and the U.S. in the last few years. Dave is a veteran and a creative member of award-winning bands SLIDE and RUNA. He also regularly performs with Grammy Award winner Moya Brennan of Clannad. Recently, Dave has been performing with ‘Instrumental band of the Decade’ The Brock McGuire Band. Dave has also recorded with Grammy award Winners Ron Block, Jeff Taylor and Buddy Greene. His most recent record, ‘A Brand New Day’, marks a new beginning in his musical career and showcases his vocals and writing style which has a contemporary sensibility whilst rooted in tradition.
