When Lúnasa released a self-titled debut CD in 1997, the Irish quintet was immediately credited with launching a new chapter in Celtic music. Combining traditional melodies with driving rhythms, the band created a fresh improvisational sound with a distinct Irish flavor. Five recordings later, Lúnasa remains one of the most popular Irish acoustic groups on the international music scene.
The band joins NPR's Fred Child in Studio 4A to share some music from the Emerald Isle.
