Come early for a pre-show Irish music session in the SBCC lobby area!  Bring instruments and come ready to jam.  We'll have an instrument check-in so you won't have to leave anything in your car either.

Plus Urban Hot Dog will be at the show selling their innovative hot dogs and sausages - including their amazing B&B (Guinness soaked bratwurst)!

Lúnasa [web site | Amazon.com] has been described by the Associated Press as "the hottest Irish acoustic group on the planet." Lúnasa is composed of Kevin Crawford (flutes, low whistles and tin whistles), Trevor Hutchinson (double bass), Ed Boyd (guitar), Seán Smyth (fiddle and low whistle) and Cillian Vallely (uilleann pipes and low whistles).

Lúnasa have sold more than quarter of a million albums in the course of the band's career and boast an impressive back catalogue of highly acclaimed and award-winning studio albums.

The band is internationally acknowledged as being the finest traditional Irish instrumental outfit of recent times. They are renowned for their stunning shows honed by superb musicianship and a constant touring cycle. They have performed over 1,500 shows across 36 countries since the band formed in 1997. The band has appeared at internationally renowned venues such as The Hollywood Bowl, National Concert Hall (Dublin), Sydney Opera House and Moscow International House of Music.

Their inventive arrangements and bass driven grooves have steered Irish acoustic music into surprising new territory. Their recordings have been hailed as some of the best and most important world music albums anywhere, while their blend of intelligence, innovation, virtuosity, and passion has brought them to the forefront of Celtic music.

Of the band, legendary Irish fiddler Kevin Burke says, "Maintaining the unique, intimate qualities of a musical tradition while at the same time meeting and fulfilling the demands of the contemporary music world is a difficult juxtaposition to achieve, yet Lúnasa have managed to accomplish exactly that."
