Lúnasa With Karen Casey: Christmas From Ireland
Christmas all the way from Ireland
Named for an ancient Celtic harvest festival in honor of the Irish god Lugh, patron of the arts, Lúnasa is a gathering of some of the top musical talents in Ireland. Its members have helped form the backbone of some of the greatest Irish groups of the decade. Amongst the awesome lineup is bassist Trevor Hutchinson, a key member of The Waterboys, all-Ireland champion fiddler Sean Smyth, Kevin Crawford, who's considered to be among the finest flutists in Ireland, and piper Cillian Vallely of the famous Vallely artistic clan who has performed with Riverdance and recently recorded with Bruce Springsteen.
"Irish music dream team."
