Since 1997, 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.

Karan Casey has long been one of the most innovative, provocative, and imitated voices in Irish traditional and folk music. During a twenty-five year career ranging from her early days as a jazz performer in in Dublin to fronting the supergroup Solas in New York to her current status as one of Ireland's top soloists, she has sold over half a million albums.

"The hottest Irish acoustic band on the planet." - Dirty Linen

"Maintains the taut, quivering ornamentation of old ballad style, singing tales of love, war and murder with a gentle gravity." - New York Times
